Due to the driving conditions, buses may experience delays throughout the entire district. If you are waiting over 15 mins for your bus please call the operations centre at 250-365-8331.

 

Conditions may or may not improve, therefore the operations department has made this plan for the entire day. In effort to minimize confusion, and to enable parents to plan for the afternoon, the bus drop off at the end of the day will be consistent with the pick up in the morning.

 

Note: Should conditions worsen, SD-20 may need to cancel bussing to additional areas of the district for the afternoon.
