SD59 Bus Route Cancellations

School Bus

The district is experiencing a shortage of casual bus drivers which has led to the cancellation of bus routes. 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 short notice is given. 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.

SD59 is accepting applications for casual and part-time bus drivers.  Please visit the employment posting if you are interested.

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.
