During the school year, there may be times when school buses are cancelled in particular zones or system-wide due to inclement weather.
During the 2022-2023 school year, in the event school bus transportation is cancelled in the bus zone where the school is located (see chart below) or cancelled system-wide due to inclement weather, all Lambton Kent District School Board (LKDSB) secondary students attending the individual school, regardless of whether they ride a bus to school or not, will engage in remote, teacher-led virtual learning on that day and the secondary school will be closed to students for in-person learning.
Refer to the chart below to review the individual bus zones for each secondary school. If buses are cancelled for the bus zone in which the school is located, all LKDSB secondary students who attend that school will engage in remote learning on that day.
Important note: Elementary schools remain open to students for in-person learning on bus cancellation dates as per current practice.
When individual buses are cancelled (e.g. mechanical issues) or delayed (e.g. fog day), secondary schools will remain open to students. If buses in other zones for the school are cancelled, but the buses in the zone where the school is located are operating, the secondary schools will remain open for in-person learning.
All secondary teachers have been asked to develop an online presence to facilitate student learning. On bus cancellation dates, secondary students will receive instructions about their transition to remote, teacher-led virtual learning as per their typical means of communication.
If you have a specific question about your child, please contact your school principal. Visit your school website and refer to the “Bus Info" button to see your school bus zones.
