New This Year - Online Student Transportation Registration
Our goal has always been, and remains, the safe and timely pick-up and delivery of each student riding the bus. Each year, we evaluate the busing program for students throughout the District so as to identify any areas upon which we can improve on. We take into consideration key factors such as enrollment, current ridership, resource availability, vehicle traffic and pick-up/arrival times at all of our schools in the district.
For the first week back to school for the 2018-2019, East and West bus routes will remain unchanged from last year.
Changes made to existing bus routes will be posted on the website and notifications will be sent to affected schools. We aim for minimal annual changes to routes which promotes consistency and ease of understanding as well as ease in planning for parents and students, however there are sometimes circumstances where changes to routes need to be made.
To assist our department in ensuring student transportation to and from school each day runs efficiently, each student rider is required to register. This year we have an online Student Transportation Registration form that can be easily filled out and submitted.
School Bus Registration: Registration is open all year long (for students who move into the district or perhaps to a new location). For students currently enrolled in School District 8 - Kootenay Lake, Online Registration must be completed by September 21st, 2018.The primary parent or caregiver for each student is required to complete the online registration.
