When buses are cancelled in the mornings
The following applies when buses are cancelled::
- If a bus route has been cancelled for the morning run, the bus is cancelled for the whole day. Parents/guardians will be responsible for the return transportation for any student dropped off at school.
- When a bus does not travel in the morning due to heavy fog and the fog clears during the day, the bus will pick up students in the afternoon for the return journey.
