Yellow Bus Information
Those students who live within our school boundary and north of 137 Avenue are eligible for yellow bus transportation. A District transportation form must be submitted at least two weeks before the desired start date for transportation. Between September and June, please call the school office to receive a transportation application.
During the summer months please contact the District Transportation Office directly at 780 441 6078. Busing will not be available for the start of the school year if the application is received within the last two weeks of August.
It is very important that the Transportation Department have accurate contact information. Parents are contacted through phone, text and email messages of any bus schedule changes, interruptions or disruptions.
Note: Sir John Thompson School is not responsible for the yellow buses. Any issues or concerns should be directed to the Transportation Office.
