Changes to Student Transportaition

Anglophone West School District Transportation Department’s past practice has been to allow students to travel to and from multiple locations on a school bus.  We have historically been able to provide this service because our school buses could transport up to 70 students.  However, under the current guidelines of operating a school bus during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to greatly reduce the student capacity on our school buses.  Starting in September 2020, we will not be able to transport more than 48 students (for middle and high school students) and much fewer than 48 when transporting Kindergarten to Grade 5 students on any of our school buses.  Although our requirements under Regulation 2001-51 are to transport students to and from home, we understand that for many families, alternate pick-up and drop-off locations are necessary.  Considering this, we are asking families to select only one pick-up and drop-off location for the 2020-21 school year.  Should the pick-up or drop-off location need to change, we require 5 school days’ notice.  It is our utmost intent to ensure that we best serve the families of our school district and we will try accommodating as many requests as possible.  We ask that if you require a pick-up or drop-off location other than your residence, please email us at asdw.ptms@nbed.nb.ca  or call 1-506-325-4582 to advise.  We will require the student’s name, address, grade, school, and alternate address location (pick-up or drop-off) to accept any requests.  We appreciate your support with this initiative.  Sincerely, Daniel Wishart - Transportation Manager​
