NO BUSES ON FRIDAY -Here’s the plan

Dear parents,

Thank you all for your cooperation today. The drop off and pick up went quite smoothly without the buses and I know many of you have to rearrange schedules and find grandparents to help, but thank you. It was great to see all of the students back. (And they might not admit it, but I think they were happy to be back.)

Due to continued issues with roads, no buses will be transporting students to and from school tomorrow.

Therefore, we will follow the same plan as we used today.

STUDENT Drop Off

Student drop off is from 7:30 – 8:30

We do not want any students being dropped off until your vehicle is at the identified drop off area, at the back door of the school (The Bus Entrance). We would like to maintain the flow of traffic in the parking lot.

Students with their own vehicles can park in the parking lot as usual.

STUDENT Pick Up

Parents can enter through main school driveway and be directed to pick their son or daughter up at either door. You can park in the student parking lot or to the rig

Parents will stay to the right side to pick up and exit the bus driveway via the left lane.ht of the driveway.

Students who have their own vehicles will leave through the bus exit via the left lane.
ALL Vehicles MUST EXIT THROUGH THE BUS EXIT PLEASE.
STUDENT Drop Off

I appreciate your patience and cooperation as we still try to dig our way out from a month of storms.

**If you were not able to get your student to school, please call the office (902-887-2424) and let us know.

Alternate Transportation Plan for March 26th

Kinkora Regional High School Alternate Transportation Plan

Buses for Kinkora Regional High will not be running on Thursday, March 26th as many roads are still not safe for school bus travel.  Classes will resume as usual and parents will be responsible for transporting their students if they deem transportation safe from their area.

Having students dropped off and picked up presents our school with many considerations in order to ensure the safety of our students. This is the plan for our school.

STUDENT Drop Off

Student drop off is from 7:30 – 8:30

We do not want any students being dropped off until your vehicle is at the identified drop off area, at the back door of the school (The Bus Entrance).  We would like to maintain the flow of traffic in the parking lot.

Parents are asked to drop their student(s) off at the bus door while in the lane closest to the school.

Students with their own vehicles can park in the parking lot as usual.

STUDENT Pick Up

Parents can enter through main school driveway and be directed to pick their son or daughter up at either door.  You can park in the student parking lot or to the right of the driveway.

Parents will stay to the right side to pick up and exit the bus driveway via the left lane.

Students who have their own vehicles will leave through the bus exit via the left lane.

 I appreciate your patience in this matter.
