June 25, 2020 the Manitoba Government released the Guidelines for Transportation to Schools. For
the 2020–21 school year, these guidelines require school buses to operate at 50
per cent capacity or less due to physical distancing requirements. River
East Transcona School Division is mindful that school bus transportation and
school operations are still a fluid situation for fall and assure parents that
we will follow current government and health guidelines for safe operation.
To implement the released guidelines for the safety and health of students and staff,
school bus transportation will not
be available to all eligible riders and support from parents/guardians is
required during this unprecedented time. We are requesting parents/guardians of
students who received school bus transportation in 2019–20 to fill out a short
survey by July
24, 2020. The information provided will help us plan and make
decisions to ensure bus transportation complies with health directives and is
provided to as many students as possible
