                                   IS MY BUS CANCELLED TODAY??
All schools in Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board , Hastings and Prince Edward District School
Board , Limestone District School Board, Conseil des ecoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario and Conseil des ecoles
Catholiques de Langue Francaise du Centre-Est (Kingston and Trenton area) will remain open in the event of full bus
cancellation unless otherwise determined by the Director(s) of Education.

Morning Cancellations:
It is a consensus that the Bus Operators/Tri-Board Student Transportation Services Inc staff are in the best position to
determine whether or not buses should run. In this regard the following will apply:

Inclement Weather
Bus routes that have been cancelled due to inclement weather are cancelled for the whole day. Inclement
weather includes winter fog. Parents/guardians will be responsible for the return transportation for any student
dropped off at school.

Fog Cancellations - Spring and Fall
When a bus does not travel a route in the morning due to heavy fog, and the fog clears during the day, that bus
will pick up students in the afternoon for the return journey. In the event the fog does not lift during the day, a
decision to cancel afternoon runs will be made by 12:00 p.m. with schools being notified of the decision at that
time. Parents/guardians will be responsible for the return transportation for any student dropped off at school.


How to access information on delays or cancellations through our website:
School Administration and Parents/Guardians may access information regarding any bus cancellations or delays by
accessing the Tri-Board Student Transportation Services’ website at www.triboard.on.ca. Cancellations or delays will
be posted on the website as early as possible.

Tri-Board Student Transportation Services Inc serves an area from Algonquin Park in the north west to Trenton in the
south west and from Sharbot Lake in the north east to Gananoque in the south east. Weather patterns can certainly vary
from one area to another.

Parents/guardians and school personnel are encouraged to log into the Tri-Board website daily to view any
cancellations and delays caused by weather or mechanical problems that may affect students. The Tri-Board home page
will display a message indicating whether there are any buses that are delayed or cancelled for that day.
