OSTA letters and walking bus opportunity

posted Jun 23, 2015, 1:35 PM by Tracy Mertz
Some families have received letters from OSTA indicating that their child will not be eligible for bus transportation next year.  The guidelines are on the OSTA's website and are as follows:  KP -  .8 km,  grade 1 -  grade 8  - 1.6 km.  Students who live under these distance guidelines will be walking to school. 

Some parents have expressed an interest in setting up a walking bus, that would see groups of children walking to school together who are affected by these changes.  If you are interested in discussing this possibility with other parents, please send a note to the office with a contact e-mail address.  You would be agreeing to share your e-mail information with the group for the purposes of talking to other parents to work out some walking bus arrangements. This information will be sent home via your child on Thursday. The organization of the walking school bus would be at parent's discretion and control.
