brochure will soon be sent home by our school describing the voluntary
self-identification initiative for First Nation, Métis and Inuit students. Your
Indigenous heritage is a vital part of who you are. By identifying your child
or teen as a First Nation, Métis or Inuit student, this helps us build the best
possible school programs for all students. The information you provide when you
self-identify will be private and confidential.
You may choose to
self-identify either by completing the form included on the brochure or on the
Student Registration Verification Form which will be sent home in the coming
Student Transportation Services of Central Ontario
Newsletter - November, 2017
Families, Parents and Guardians:
winter season will soon be here and it is very important that everyone using
the school busing system is familiar with STSCO’s winter weather procedures.
the winter and prior to the beginning of the school day, inclement weather and
poor road conditions may lead to the delay or cancellation of school
transportation services. On such days, bus delay and cancellation information
will be posted on the www.stsco.ca website, our primary means of
communicating about busing. Also, area radio stations and media outlets will
broadcast related information.
a parent or guardian, it is recommended that you use the “Inclement Weather
Days” reference sheet attached to this Newsletter and that you keep it in a
prominent place for quick use on inclement weather days.
keep in mind that you should:
¨know your child’s school bus route
number and the name of the bus company operating the route;
¨listen to your local radio station;
¨visit the www.stsco.ca website
in the morning for delays or cancellations; or
the www.stsco.ca website and choose to receive delay and
cancellation information by:
providing your email address for direct email notices from STSCO;
up for the STSCO RSS feed; or
on to receive STSCO’s posts on Facebook or Tweets via Twitter.
Other reminders include:
¨If a bus is cancelled in the morning, it
will NOT run in the afternoon.
sure that your child is at the bus stop 10 minutes prior to the scheduled bus arrival
busing procedures with your child to ensure they know what to do if a bus is
late or cancelled.
you need to confirm your child’s route number, you can visit the www.stsco.cawebsite
and click on the “PARENT LOGIN” link and follow the onscreen instructions. You
will need your child’s 9-digit OEN student number, located beside their name on
their report card, as well as their birth date. For those who may not be aware
of their child’s OEN student number, contact your school to get the information.
Once logged in, you may provide your email address to be directly emailed when
your child’s bus route is delayed or cancelled.
inclement weather days, schools are very busy and rather than calling the
school to see if a bus route is cancelled, you should visit the STSCO website
or listen to your favourite, local radio station.
keeping the above information in mind, everyone will be better prepared to deal
