Courtesy Seats on School Buses for the 2020-2021 School Year

Families with children who take the bus to school are advised that the application process for receiving courtesy seats on school buses will be delayed for the 2020-21 school year. Due to physical distancing measures in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19, it may not be possible to grant courtesy seats or the process may be delayed for next school year.

However, parents and guardians can continue to submit a Courtesy Seat Application, and will be notified via email once a decision on this process has been made.

Please note that there is no guarantee that a courtesy seat will be offered if you submit an application, or if your child had a courtesy seat in the past. Visit the Halton Student Transportation Services website for more information: www.haltonbus.ca

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

All parents should have received emails to sign up for a time to pickup their child’s materials on Wednesday, June 24th, 2020.  Click HERE to access details and information you will need to know about gathering your child’s belongings.  A reminder that student item pick-up/drop-off will take place on Monday, June 22nd (Grade 8s ONLY) and Wednesday, June 24th (Grades K-7).

As a follow up to the email sent earlier in the week, please note that the registration portal and waitlist has been re-opened for the Grades 6-8 Literacy and Math ~ Distance Learning Summer Programs, taking place this July.

Due to high enrolment, all new student registration requests submitted after June 10th will be added to the current waitlist. New classes will open based on teacher availability, and registrations will no longer be accepted when classes are full.

Parents and guardians can access the registration portal for their child to be added to the waitlist here: Summer Distance Learning

Please note that filling out the following form does not guarantee admission into the program as spaces are limited. Parents and guardians will be contacted directly if their child is placed in a class.
