When are buses and/or school cancelled due to weather?
If inclement weather conditions occur, Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) will advise parents of any bus cancellations using various communications tools including: automated-telephone messages, alerts posted on www.eips.ca and school websites, Twitter, Facebook, local radio stations, and on Versatrans My Stop.
Decisions regarding bus cancellations are guided by EIPS administrative procedures that states: “school bus service may be suspended when…Environment Canada reports a temperature of -40 C.” Other reasons for suspending or delaying school bus services include adverse weather and poor road condition.
When school bus services are suspended, schools will remain open to students. EIPS believes parents have the right and responsibility to make choices for their children based on their beliefs and perceptions of safety during times of inclement weather.
For more information regarding busing, contact EIPS Student Transportation at 780-417-8151.
Check out EIPS Administrative Procedures for more information regarding inclement weather procedures.
