Met at stop Medical Transfer

Students with a Purple Tag will not be let off the bus without a parent or guardian present at the stop. These are provided to all new JK/SK students and by request from the school

After filling out a  Plan of Care at the school, students with major health concerns will be provided a Red Tag to alert drivers that they are at a higher risk of having a health emergency.

To be easily recognized by drivers,  students who transfer buses mid-route will be provided with a Blue Tag. These are provided to all primary grade students and by request from the school

 

Cancellations & Delays

Alert

Bus Cancelations Due to Driver Shortage

Ontario is experiencing a school bus driver shortage causing buses to be cancelled. We appreciate that a bus cancellation impacts students and their families. Our bus companies are actively training more bus drivers to prevent cancellations.  If you or someone you know is interested in driving a school bus in Tri-Board’s service area, please visit triboard.ca/drivers.
