Families have until July 31 to pay to secure a seat on the bus

If a student wants a seat on the school bus, it’s going to cost them.

At the Monday, May 30 meeting, the Okanagan Skaha school board implemented a $25 per student bus registration fee. This fee must be paid before a bus pass is issued.

Registration for the 2022-2023 school year is now open. The board is asking that families register student(s) as soon as possible to secure a seat.

A form must be completed to have a child placed on a bus route for the start of the 2022-2023 school year. The registration deadline is July 31.

The district provides transportation to and from catchment schools for all students that live outside the district’s established walk limits. To fill out the form click here.
