Reminder: YRDSB Inclement Weather Procedures & Bus Cancellations

YRDSB INCLEMENT WEATHER PROCEDURES:

School Bus Cancellation Notice

To ensure the safety of students, school bus service may be cancelled due to inclement weather, extreme temperatures and/or poor road conditions. In these cases, parents and students should develop alternate care/transportation arrangements.

Cancellation decisions will only be made after thorough consultation with the Safety Officers of school bus companies servicing York Region and are based on several factors including precipitation, air temperature, road conditions and weather forecast.

Please note the following;

A decision to cancel school bus service will be region-wide meaning all school buses, vans and taxis will not operate.
School bus routes may be cancelled when severe weather may not be affecting all municipalities in York Region. Both the YRDSB and YCDSB operate many regional educational programs. Students attending these programs are transported over large attendance areas encompassing several municipal boundaries. This limits the ability to cancel bus service using a municipality or zone methodology.
When bus service is cancelled all school tests and/or examinations will be cancelled and rescheduled.
Student trips involving the use of school buses will also be cancelled.
Unless otherwise stated, schools will remain open and parents can make arrangements to transport their children to and from school even if school bus service is cancelled. If buses are cancelled in the morning, they will not operate in the afternoon. Therefore students transported to school by parents will require the same transportation home.

Parents, students and school staff are asked to access the following radio and television stations after 6:00 a.m. to receive bus cancellation information:

How to Book Your Parent-Teacher Interview(s)

Wilshire E.S. is pleased to announce that we will be using an online process through Edsby to manage our Parent-Teacher Interviews scheduling.  Edsby is an intuitive, cloud-based platform that will allow families to easily reserve times to meet with their child’s teachers. YRDSB in partnership with Edsby have created a secure platform that protects the privacy of information for our YRDSB families.  Many more Edsby features will be rolled out in the months ahead.

Families will need to create an Edsby Account to access the online appointment scheduler for each of their child’s teachers for Parent-Teacher Interviews.  Only families who create an Edsby account prior to the schedule being opened on November 10th will have access. For help signing up for Parent-Teacher interviews, please visit http://bit.ly/edsbyparents.

You will receive an email from York Region District School Board (in the next few days) with instructions on how to create an Edsby account. If you do not see the email, please check your junk mail folder to ensure you do not miss this opportunity.
