School Bus Registration
Information on School Bus Registration
To ensure the safety of all students riding on Grande Yellowhead School Division buses, all passengers must be registered to ride the school bus and students may only load or unload the school bus at their designated stop or school. Parents are encouraged to review the school bus rider rules with their children and communicate alternate transportation plans with your child’s bus driver.
NEW for 2021/2022
All students, both new and returning riders, are now required to complete an online registration form. An email following your registration form will be sent confirming your registration status within 2-3 business days. Please contact the transportation department at 780-723-4471 if you have not received this confirmation. School jurisdictions are provided funding to transport eligible students to their designated school only. Other applicable user fees will be charged annually according to Policy 17, Appendix A.
