Transportation Update

August 27, 2020

retsd bus (WEBSITE).jpgWe are finalizing bus routes and will be uploading student transportation information to the parent portal next week. 

We have made an important update to the transportation section of our "Welcoming Students Back" document regarding walking distance. As we worked through routes—with thoughtful planning around physical distancing, cohorts, and siblings—we are able to bus more students within 2.5 km, so we've updated our plan to reflect this important change.

We will not be able to bus every eligible student, but will be able to bus the majority focusing on youngest and furthest as well as those outside the perimeter and students with additional needs. Once busing routes have been announced, we are asking parents of students who have transportation to contact us as soon as possible if you do not intend to use this service. This will open up every available seat to as many eligible students as possible. Please contact our transportation department at 204.669.0202 or trans@retsd.mb.ca
