During the winter months, inclement weather and/or poor road conditions may cause the disruption of bus transportation and regular school operations. If buses are cancelled in a certain zone/region, schools will remain open to staff and students.
STUDENT TRANSPORTATION ZONES
For student transportation purposes, schools located in Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon (Peel Region), which are served by Student Transportation of Peel Region (STOPR), are divided into three transportation zones, ZONE 1, ZONE 2 and ZONE 3. Please refer to the Weather Zone Map and School Lists to find which zone your school is located within.
For student transportation purposes, DPCDSB's three schools located in Dufferin County (Orangeville), St. Andrew, St. Benedict, St. Peter Catholic Elementary Schools, are served by Service de Transport de Wellington-Dufferin Student Transportation Service (STWDSTS). Although R.F. Hall Catholic Secondary School is located in Peel Region, a significant segment of the school’s student population is transported from Dufferin County by STWDSTS.
NOTE: ALL R.F. HALL CATHOLIC SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENT TRANSPORTATION IS CANCELLED ON DAYS WHEN BUSES ARE CANCELLED IN EITHER STOPR ZONE 3 OR IN DUFFERIN COUNTY ONLY.
WHAT IF MY SCHOOL IS LOCATED IN A ZONE THAT IS OPEN BUT IS SERVICED BY BUSES THAT ORIGINATE IN, OR TRAVEL THROUGH, ANOTHER ZONE WHERE BUSES ARE CANCELLED?
This scenario would only occur at a few DPCDSB schools. Additional messaging will be sent to families of those schools.
HOW DO I KNOW IF THERE IS A BUS CANCELLATION?
Bus cancellation notices are usually posted by 6:00 a.m. or shortly afterwards in the following ways:
• Student Transportation of Peel Region (STOPR)
• Wellington-Dufferin Student Transportation Services (STWDSTS)
