Each year the busing service is reviewed to ensure we continue to provide a safe and high-quality service to our CFIS families. We have engaged First Student Canada to provide transportation to and from school on days when classes are in session.
Due to safety considerations, we will be providing collector pick-up and drop-off points for the 2020 – 2021 school year. Door to door service will not be available. The collector pick-up and drop-off locations will be set in April 2020 based on the bus requests submitted by April 1st, 2020. We will continue to strive to maintain the objective of having Senior & Junior High students walk less than one kilometer and Elementary students walk less than 0.5 kilometers to the closest bus stop. For ECE students, there is an expectation that they will be collected by a responsible person at the drop off point.
We strive for a timely service for our families. To decrease travel time and increase efficiency, CFIS may, each year, set boundaries where bus service will not be available. Parents living outside of the determined boundaries will be expected to bring their child (ren) to a collector pick-up and drop-off point.
