Due to the early school dismissal on December 18, 2020 for the Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB) and Halton District School Board (HDSB) students, afternoon drop off times at bus stops will be adjusted accordingly by 90 minutes.

Students should be prepared to secure their equipment properly before they board the school bus to ensure it does not interfere with the safety of the driver and passengers or the safe, expedient evacuation of the vehicle. Certain materials and objects are prohibited on a school purpose vehicle as they could become a projectile on a bus.
