School Bus CANCELLATIONS 

  • ​STOPR: 905-890-6000
  • www.dpcdsb.org or this website.  There will be a yellow ALERT banner at the top of the page - advising of any cancellations or other relevant alert messages.
  • Call 905-890-1221 to hear opening recorded message (e.g. "Thank you for calling the DPCDSB on Wednesday, January 29, 2023​​​.  Please be advised that buses in Dufferin County and Caledon are cancelled today...")
  • X - all cancellations/closures are tweeted.  Follow the DPCDSB at:  @DPCDSBSchools

During the winter months inclement weather may cause disruption of bus transportation and regular school operations. A decision to cancel school transportation and/or to close schools is usually made by 6:00a.m. and will be announced on the radio and television stations listed below.  If school buses cannot run safely due to poor weather conditions in the morning or the threat of worsening conditions later in the school day an announcement is made.

“ALL DUFFERIN PEEL BUSES are CANCELLED”.

If transportation is cancelled in the morning there will be no transportation in the afternoon – even if weather conditions improve.

Sometimes parents struggle to get their children to the school when buses are cancelled only to be faced with the impossible task of getting the children home if conditions get worse during the day. Children who are not at school due to bus cancellations are not considered absent on the attendance register.

If you hear: "The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board buses and the Peel District School Board buses in THE TOWN OF CALEDON are cancelled." 

This means BUS 10 and BUS 16 are cancelled only.
