BUS POLICY/CANCELLATION INFORMATION

Bus Policy:

Bus students in the City of Martensville will not receive a phone call from the bus driver to announce bus cancellations due to extreme weather conditions.

Martensville Bus cancellation announcements:

  • All Prairie Spirit School Division bus cancellations are prominently posted on the Prairie Spirit website (www.spiritsd.ca/Buses) by 6:00 a.m. each school day. Please keep in mind that you will need to refresh your computer in order to ensure you are able to see the most current updates to the website.
  • Prairie Spirit has a bus hotline: 306-683-2805 that will list bus cancellations every day.
  • The following radio stations will also make sporadic announcements of bus cancellations in our school division: The Bull 92.9 and C95 (FM) and CKOM 650 and 600 CJWW (AM).

Buses in Prairie Spirit School Division will not run if the combined temperature/windchill factors result in a reading of -40 degrees or below at 6:00am (as reported by Environment Canada at www.weatheroffice.gc.ca).

A bus route that is cancelled in the morning due to extreme cold will run in the afternoon, if conditions have improved to warmer than -40 degrees Celsius (combined temperature/windchill) at 12 noon. In the past, if a bus route was cancelled in the morning due to cold weather, it was automatically cancelled for the entire day.

If the bus will run at the end of the school day, parents will receive notifications through the Versatrans My Stop app and the update will be posted on the Division’s website and phone hotline (306-683-2805).

Buses are not to operate if weather conditions such as freezing rain, dense fog, heavy rain, or severe dust storms impair visibility or otherwise cause dangerous travel conditions.

Wheelchair lift equipment will not operate if combined temperature/windchill factors are at or below -35 degrees Celsius at 6:00am. Drivers must contact the student’s family if the lift equipment is not operating. The bus will pick up the student in the afternoon if the combined temperature is above -35 degrees Celsius at 12:00 noon. The driver will contact the student’s family if the lift equipment is operating for the afternoon route.
