SCHOOL BUS INFORMATION
Parents can access their child(ren)'s bussing information by visiting www.stopr.ca
This is the best way to keep up to date regarding bus routes, late busses, or cancellations. Parents will be required to enter their child's OEN number (found on their report cards) to get their child's specific bussing information.
At St. Philip School, the only students eligible for bussing are Kindergarten and Grade 1 students who live more than 1.0 km from the school, and Extended French students who live beyond 2.0 km from the school.
This means that if your child will be in grade 2 in Sept. 2014, then they will not be eligible for immediate bussing in September. Their only option will be to apply for a courtesy seat, and the earliest possible granting of courtesy seats will be in early October. Similarly, all students who applied for courtesy seats in 2013-14, will have to apply for courtesy seats again in September 2014, and the earliest possible time for bussing to begin is early October.
Students who are not eligible for transportation may apply to the Principal through the courtesy rider policy for permission to ride the bus. If you wish to be considered for a courtesy seat, please indicate this in writing to the Principal stating the name of your child, grade and address, via the “Courtesy Seat” application available in the Office in September.
