Inclement weather and bus cancellation information reminder http://inn.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/430Inclement weather and bus cancellation information reminder <p>​</p><p><strong>Inclement weather and bus cancellation information reminder </strong><br>All information regarding cancelled buses in Simcoe County is posted on the Simcoe County Student Transportation Consortium (SCSTC)'s bus information website at <a href="http://www.simcoecountyschoolbus.ca/">www.simcoecountyschoolbus.ca</a>. Our school is in the <i>Central </i>zone. When buses are cancelled, schools remain open for student learning, unless otherwise noted. It is always a family decision whether or not it is safe for their child(ren) to leave for school under severe weather conditions.</p><p> </p><p>The Consortium and bus operators try to make the decision to cancel school buses before 6 a.m. and make every effort to post announcements before 7 a.m. Inclement weather cancellations are effective for the whole day and buses cancelled in the morning will not run at the end of the day. You can follow the Consortium on Twitter @SCSTC_SchoolBus for bus cancellations and other information.
