Busing (Urban and Rural)
Urban busing is provided in compliance with the Prairie Spirit School Division busing policy. All École Traditions students are eligible for bus service.
Bus Request forms are available on the Prairie Spirit School Division website www.spiritsd.ca. By following the Parents, then Busing links, you will find the policy, maps and busing request form. It can be submitted by email to email@example.com, by faxing it to 306-374-2862 or by dropping it off at the PSSD Office in Warman. Please read the PSSD Busing Policy #805 in regards to severe weather, buses and busing regulations.
Students using the urban busing service will be expected to have a valid bus pass and rural students must be on the list for rural busing. No pass is required for rural students. Bus drivers will not allow students on the bus who are not on the rural bus list, or do not have an urban bus pass. All urban passengers must obtain a bus pass and present it to the bus driver to ride the bus. Bus passes are valid only for the bus that is indicated on the pass. Students may not ride any other bus than indicated on their pass. There is also no allowance for guest passengers to ride Warman buses due to over-crowding.
In the event of severe weather, Warman bus drivers are in contact with each other and collectively compare road and weather conditions. In accordance to Prairie Spirit School Division Busing Policy #805, should the temperature be -40 degrees with wind chill, or if road conditions are considered dangerous, buses will not run. In that situation, it will be posted on the PSSD website www.spiritsd.ca by 7:00 a.m.
If any or all buses do not run, parents need to know that urban bus students will not receive a phone call. Please make it a habit to check the Prairie Spirit School Division’s website daily (www.spiritsd.ca) for Bus Cancellations.
In the event buses are not running, the school remains open for students. Parents are welcome to transport their children to and from school on those days. It is also important to note that if buses do not operate in the morning, they will not operate after school that day, even if weather conditions improve.
There will be no early dismissals due to deteriorating weather conditions. If it is determined buses will not run at the regular dismissal time, previously arranged urban billeting is to be used for bus students. Please keep your contact information updated for this purpose.
