Back to School Guidelines for Transportation

The following guidelines are provided to ensure the safe transportation of students on school buses for home to school and return transportation. The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit has provided consultation and specific guidance in preparing these guidelines. click here to download the pdf



Opt Out of Transportation

Opting out helps us with social distancing on the bus and give a more accurate manifest of who will be riding.
*** Eligible students can re-apply for transportation through the school at any time. ***
Due to high volumes, September applications will take longer to process.    click here for details


Bus Registration

Families must contact their school for transportation changes (moved residences, change of JK/SK Designate names, changed/new to school, returning from virtual learning etc).
If you are currently assigned to transportation and no longer wish to use it, please submit the opt out form This will help us with social distancing on the bus and give a more accurate manifest of who is riding.
