Notes for riding and alternate bus

The Transportation Office is requesting that parents refrain from sending a note giving permission to their child to ride another child's school bus. The buses within the Hamlet of Sherwood Park, Fort Saskatchewan, and Camrose are almost at capacity and your child may not be permitted to board their friend's bus. Thank you.

Bus delays/cancellations

The Transportation Department communicates bus delays and cancellations on the EICS website and via the SynreVoice call out and email system. Please ensure your phone numbers and emails are correct at the school.
