2021-22 sǝnsisyustǝn School Bus Consent Form
The primary service of this bus is to students attending sənsisyustən School. The bus provides service to other students who are First Nations status, living on IR 9 or 10, and attending Chief Tomat, Constable Neil Bruce and Mount Boucherie. The school bus will have designated stops located on the reserve.

Parents are required to read and discuss the following with their children to ensure they understand the school bus transportation requirements for them to safely ride the bus.

SD 23 provides buses to the areas and the students not covered by our bus. If your child no longer requires school bus transportation, we ask that you contact Transportation Services at 250-870-5151 or email transportation@sd23.bc.ca

Passenger Requirements:
1. Parents and caregivers must assess their child daily for symptoms of common cold, influenza, COVID-19, or other infectious respiratory disease before sending them to school. If a child has any symptoms, they must not ride the bus or attend school.
2. Students in Grades 4 to 12 are required to wear non-medical masks or face covering when they are loading, unloading and riding on the school bus. Students in Grades K to 3 are encouraged to wear a non-medical mask or face covering on school buses but are not required to do so.
3. If the grade 4 through 12 student is not wearing a mask or is not willing to wear a mask, they may be denied access onto the school bus.
4. Students should clean their hands before and after taking the bus. Hand sanitizer is available and students may use upon loading or unloading the school bus.
5. All students will have assigned seats and may not switch or move seats unless permitted to do so by the driver.
6. Only registered riders may be transported on the school bus, no guest passengers are permitted to ride.
7. Other than a student's water bottle, food or beverages may not be consumed while riding on the school bus and lunch/snacks must remain in the students backpack or lunch kit.
8. Students shall be at the bus stop 10 minutes before the designated pick up time.

School Bus Drivers will do their best to arrive within a few minutes of the pick up or drop off time indicated however, during the first week you could expect to see fluctuations in the bus schedule until a routine is developed and the driver can further confirm pick up and drop off times at the bus stop.

Students must be five years of age or older to ride the bus. Non registered riders will not be permitted to ride the bus.

Parents / guardians who wish sənsisyustən students to get off at a different stop than the one registered need to contact the school thirty minutes prior to the student leaving. Changes cannot be made once the student is on the bus.

Remember, riding the school bus is a privilege, not a right, and students can be removed for their behavior. Such removal will be at the discretion of the sənsisyustən Principal or other designated WFN employee.
