Transportation

For the 2014/2015 school year, Blair Ridge does not have DSTS bussing. Any busses servicing our school are private bus companies. Parents should contact their bus provider for information and updates on school bus cancellations.

School Closure

Please note that just because buses are cancelled, it does not mean that schools are closed. Please listen carefully to the media outlets for the appropriate announcement. Schools are only closed when deemed absolutely necessary.

Help your child be prepared for inclement weather by:

  • Creating a contingency plan for your child in the event that the bus is late arriving at the stop
  • Making sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather conditions

Safe Arrival

On days when buses are cancelled, it is still important to contact the school's Safe Arrival Line at 905-620-1221 if your child will be late, or is not coming, to school. We do not contact families to inform them of bus cancellations so please be sure to monitor the media outlets. 


Extreme Cold

The DDSB has guidelines in place to help schools decide whether or not it is safe to send students outside. At Blair Ridge Public School, we are fortunate to have extremely accurate diigital site readings in place to help us monitor outside temperatures and wind speeds. Our administration uses this information to help facilitate decisions about whether or not students will have an outdoor recess. For more information, see the DDSB Winter Weather Information document.
