During the coldest winter months, please listen to the local radio stations in the morning for
information about school bus cancellations. Our transportation provider relies on the local media
to help them let parents know if buses are cancelled due to severe weather. Information will also
be available through the Regina Catholic School Division’s Twitter account @RCSD_No81 and
on the school division’s web site at www.rcsd.ca
School buses are automatically cancelled for the entire day when Environment Canada reports
the temperature with wind chill at 6:00 a.m. is minus 45 degrees Celsius or colder.
Severe weather and adverse operating conditions include, but are not limited to: high winds, poor visibility, extremely cold temperatures, high wind chill factors, blizzards, snowdrifts, deeply rutted or snowbound roads, torrential rain, flooding, mud
Parents whose children are bused to school are responsible for monitoring winter weather
conditions and for having an alternate plan if the school bus is cancelled due to severe weather.
Please ensure your child is familiar with your alternate plan. If parents believe there is a risk of harm before their child gets on the bus (for example, severely cold weather), it is the parent’s
responsibility to arrange for a safe way for their child to meet the school bus or seek alternate
shelter. If the school bus is cancelled, it is the parent’s responsibility to make alternate
arrangements to get their child to school safely.
