Student Bussing New Online Registration

From our TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT regarding Student Bussing:

To improve the quality of passenger manifests, we are moving away from our paper student bus registration form.  We are going to an on line form that parents and guardians can access on the school district web site.  This from is accessed in the transportation section and I have provided a link for your viewing. ftp://www.sd78.bc.ca/downloads/public/SD78%20Documents%20&%20Forms/Bus%20Information/SchoolBusRegistration.pdf

If there is no internet available, using a printed copy of this form and returning it to the bus driver, school or transportation department will work.


If you have any questions you can contact the Bus Supervisor, Dan Landrath at 604-796-1042 or by email dan.landrath@sd78.bc.ca
