Possible School Bus Disruptions


Dear Parents/Guardians,

Saanich Schools works diligently to provide consistent, predictable bus service to students and
their families. Like many organizations in this current labour market, we are experiencing
recruitment and replacement challenges in a number of areas. This includes district bus drivers.

To date, we have been able to replace drivers who are absent ensuring uninterrupted bus
service. However, we want to take this opportunity to share that while we continue to prioritize
consistent bus service, there may be situations beyond our control that result in the need to
cancel specific bus routes if we are unable to replace a driver on a particular day.

If any bus routes do need to be cancelled, we will endeavor to communicate by email to
affected parents / guardians by 6:15am on the day in question. In addition, we will post a
general message to Twitter (@sd63schools) and on our Saanich Schools website.

Parents / guardians are asked to check their email and the school district website for any
updates to bus schedules. Please consider developing alternate transportation plans for your
child if we are unable to provide bus service on your route.

Thank you for your understanding.

Gord Bridges
Transportation Manager, Saanich Schools
