BUS UPDATE...

We have streamlined our procedure after school and each student now has a designated bus line to go to. We have adjusted a few bus passes with an updated # to eliminate confusion. Our hope is this becomes familiar and with consistency, our students will transition to their bus with minimal difficulty. This new procedure has improved every day. Thank-you to our staff who have been so helpful to our students after school. Please contact your child's homeroom teacher with concerns.


Transfer site-For consistency, we are messaging to our students to find the bus number matching the number on the bottom of their bus pass. In some cases, students won't have to get off their bus they travel on to the transfer site.


If there are problems at the transfer site or along the route itself, you are asked to contact BRSD Transportation at 780-672-6131 ext. 1.


School administration is always available for any transportation concerns as well.

BUS PASS REMINDER!

**Please remind your child they will need their bus pass to scan each time they access the Bus**

****PLEASE STAY CLEAR FROM BUS LANES AT THE BEGINNING OF OUR DAY AND AT THE END OF OUR DAY*****

Back to School: Prayer for the Start of the School Year


Loving God, Our creator, our saviour, our companion, bless this journey of a new school year that we undertake today.

Refresh our souls and renew our spirits as we embrace the beautiful ministry you have called us to.

We welcome those who are new to this community and ask that you strengthen them to share the wonderful gifts you have given them.

Lord, make our hearts pure as we prepare for the return of students to this school, and may you guide them to return with open hearts and minds eager to learn.

We ask this in Your name,

Amen
