Fall 2020-21 Update:

School bussing during the upcoming school year will be the most challenging place for us to support physical distancing and respiratory hygiene. 

 

We are encouraging families have their children walk or ride their bike to school or to drive their children to and from school whenever possible in order to reduce the number of riders on each bus. We will also be initiating rider registration in early August.  No student will be permitted to ride unless they are registered.  A link to 2020-21 bus registration will be sent out to families in early August.  The link will also be made available on this page and your school's website.

A
ll buses will have seating plans and attendance procedures, back to front loading on the way to school and PPE for drivers.  Buses will be sanitized after every trip to prepare for the next bus cohort.

 

Some students who have been permitted to ride in the past, but who do not qualify under provincial regulations or MHPSD policy, may not be permitted to continue to ride in the 2020-2021 school year. 

 

These measures will allow us to provide appropriate contact tracing if someone testpositive for COVID-19 and has used school bus transportation. 

Medicine Hat Public School Division transports over 2,500 students including students with special needs. At this time, there is no registration required or cost associated with accessing school bus transportation with MHPSD. Families are asked to view our attendance area maps and bus route maps to learn about pick up and drop locations and times. If your child requires special transportation (ex: wheel chair accessibility) please contact Robert Olson, Transportation Coordinator 403.528.6572. 

The Board may provide transportation service for resident students in the following categories:

  1. Students within the school division boundaries who reside over 2.4km from their designated school.
  2. Grades K-3 students residing beyond 1.2km from their designated school.

School bus transportation is provided by our partners at Southland Transportation. If your child's bus is late or if you have questions about scheduling or routes please contact Southland Transportation at 403.526.4655.
