January Parents Please Note

In the event of inclement weather Mrs. Link will send a “Remind” message to all parents who have signed up. Parents can also visit the School Board Website: (www.wqsb.qc.ca) for daily updates on school bus transportation and school/center closure.

Normally the School Board will contact the principal between 6:15 a.m. and 6:30 a.m., prior to busses starting their routes.

Depending on weather conditions (snowfall, freezing rain) the School Board will assess the road conditions with the assistance of various bus transporters, several municipalities (public works) and French School Boards.

Thereafter, a decision is made whether or not to cancel transportation.

School buses may also be delayed as a result of road and weather conditions.

Parents are responsible for their children prior to boarding and after departing the school bus.
