February 12, 2021 -- Transportation with specialized equipment for wheelchairs has been cancelled due to windchill of -42C. All other student transportation is operating today. Please bundle up and call school with any absences.
If students will be absent, please report absences to school.
Note our procedures below.
If wind chill is colder than -40C, student transportation will be cancelled for those requiring specialized buses with wheelchair lifts. If wind chill is colder than -45C, all student transportation will be cancelled.
Regina Public Schools' Transportation office will contact parents in the event of a cancellation, but sometimes calls take time to get through. Please watch weather reports and be aware when we cancel. If your child is normally transported, and you get a phone call in the morning, and it is -40C or -45C (wind chill), it is because transportation is being cancelled.
Except in very rare circumstances (such as a furnace malfunction), we do not close schools because of weather. In the event of a transportation cancellation, parents may choose to drive their children to school. If you choose to keep children at home, please report any student absences to the school. We need to know that students are safe!
Please bundle up and be extremely careful driving in school zones. Stay safe!
