Dear families of John Sweeney CES:

Once again, inclement weather is in the forecast for tomorrow. Here are a few reminders in the event that busses are cancelled:

PIZZA LUNCH: When busses are cancelled, the pizza at lunch will also be cancelled. Please ensure that your child comes to school with a lunch. We would appreciate keeping drop-offs to a minimum.  You will receive a credit to your account through LunchBox.

ATTENDANCE CALL-INS: If your child normally takes the bus and will not be in attendance tomorrow, you do not need to call the absence in to the school.

END OF DAY: When busses are cancelled they are cancelled for the ENTIRE day and will not be running at dismissal. Alternate go-home plans need to be arranged with your child before the school day begins. Dismissal is at 3:20 p.m.

Updates for bussing are sent by Student Transportation Services, WCDSB Newswire and John Sweeney Newswire. Please ensure that you have signed up for these communications and that you check your email for bus cancellations. See below on how to sign up for alerts.
