Shoulder Tappers

For many years in School District 60 there have been excellent partnerships that have lead to great opportunities for students. Connections have often been made through staff learning about students’ interests inside and outside of school. A Provincial program called Shoulder Tappers is helping to spread that strategy beyond SD60.

Registration Required for Busing

Please note that even though the transportation fee was rescinded, parents are still required to register for busing. Without a registration Transportation is not able to include students on bus runs. The registration form is available in the link below:

2016-2017-sd-60-bus-registration-forms

If you have already completed a registration form for the 2016-2017 year you do not need to do another one.

For all questions regarding busing please contact Transportation at 250-785-1577

Bus Fees to Be Rescinded

From the Superintendent of Schools:

Thanks to a new program announced by the Minister of Education Mike Bernier on August 10, 2016, SD 60 will be able to apply for additional funding to be used against transportation costs. Successful application for this funding will allow SD 60 to suspend its current practice of collecting a bus registration fee. Families will still need to register their children with transportation but will no longer be asked to pay the $100 fee. Parents who have previously paid the fee in advance of the school year can expect their fees to be refunded in the fall.
