National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

Violence Against Women

December 6 - The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women is about remembering those who have experienced gender-based violence and those who we have lost to it. School District No. 59 (PRS) will lower our flag to half mast in recognition of this National day.

Be Prepared for Winter

The Transportation Department is reminding all students to have appropriate winter clothing when they ride the school bus. This will include but not limited to winter coats, winter footwear, head wear and hand protection.

In winter driving conditions, it is important to always be prepared for the unexpected.  This is to ensure the safety of all school bus passengers if there were to be any delays while the bus is on route.

Daily Bus Notifications

School Bus

With the shortage of casual bus drivers, bus routes may be cancelled for a single day or longer depending on the circumstances. The Transportation Department will try to limit these instances; however, there may be times when a cancellation is unforeseeable and cancelled on short notice. The Transportation Department does not directly notify families when this happens; therefore it is important to check the bus notifications daily to ensure your bus in running on schedule. Please check the bus notification tab on the school district website for daily information, or call the bus info line at 250-782-1061, or subscribe to text alerts for up to date busing information.

Note: Families in the Chetwynd rural area may contact Standard Bus at 250-788-2415 for transportation inquiries.

Erase Bullying

Erase is all about building safe and caring school communities. This includes empowering students, parents, educators and the community partners who support them to get help with challenges, report concerns to schools, and learn about complex issues facing students.
