Transportation Changes 2016-2017 School Year

Grade 1 Transportation for the 2016-2017 School Year


Regina Public Schools, effective with the 2016-17 school year, will be changing its transportation procedures for Grade 1 students. You will have been contacted directly by letter if this change applies to your family. If you did not receive a letter, but think this applies to you, please contact your school principal.


Here are some of the details of the changes, for your information. Starting with the 2016-17 school year, only Grade 1 students who reside or whose caregivers reside more than 1,200 metres from their designated school will be eligible for transportation. This is a change from previous years where the distance from school requirement was 600 metres.


Transportation eligibility is based on Regina Public Schools Administrative Procedure and guidelines, as outlined below:


  • Eligibility for Regular Program transportation includes the following:

  1. Students must reside inside the transportation services area for the designated school,

  2. Students must be enrolled and attending their designated school,

  3. Kindergarten students who reside 0.6 km or farther from the designated elementary school are eligible for transportation,

  4. Other elementary school students who reside 1.2 km or farther from the designated elementary school are eligible for transportation.


    Please be aware, however, that students may be eligible for an exception for transportation based on the guidelines listed below.


  1. Exceptions may be permitted on Regular Program school buses but not on Regular Program light vehicle transportation (cabs, vans),

  2. Exceptions may be permitted for students attending their designated school only if,

  1. The existing stop is more than 1,000 metres from the designated school,

  2. The student walks to an existing stop and there is room available on the school bus, and

  3. The student is in grade 1 to grade 5.


    Exceptions will only be granted if doing so will not affect the safety, economy or efficiency of the transportation service.


    If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your principal.

Parking Around the School

Every year around this time, people start to ignore the no stopping and no parking signs near the school. While we understand the desire to minimize your child's exposure to the elements, disobeying the law creates an unsafe situation for students who are walking to and from school, and the parents who are choosing to park in the specified areas. The school bus must have adequate space to park and let students off and there is never a reason to park in the bus zone.  As such, parking tickets will be issued on a regular basis to cars disobeying the posted signage. We appreciate your understanding and support as we try to make the school as safe a place as possible for our students.


New Playstructure Help!

The SCC is looking for a storage space for the new play structure that will be erected in the spring. They need approximately a 12' by 20' space from the end of January until April. If you can help out, contact them at Also, follow them on Facebook --
