Nbisiing Bus Lines Transportation
If your child(ren) is not taking Nbisiing Bus Lines when school starts in September, please notify the Bussing Coordinator: Charlene Bellefeuille at (705) 753-6995 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have prepared a Transportation Plan to ensure the health and safety of our children that follows the protocols set by the Government of Ontario and the Public Health Unit. Face coverings are mandatory for students aged 5 and up while riding the bus. While in school, it is mandatory to wear masks for grades 4 & up. We also require students to practice physical distancing at bus stops.
Students aged 5 and up will be required to wear face coverings in school vehicles. This is the same age requirement as directed by the Medical Officer of Health under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act throughout the Health Unit district. Exceptions will be made for students with medical conditions or special needs that prevent masking.
