In the event of inclement weather, Halton Student Transportation Services (HSTS) determines whether to cancel school transportation. When the decision is made to cancel transportation, it is cancelled for the entire day.
In consultation, the Director of Education of the Halton Catholic District School Board and the Director of Education of the Halton District School Board determine whether to close schools. In most cases, these decisions are made prior to 6 o’clock in the morning and communicated by 6:30 a.m.
The decision to cancel buses and/or close schools is communicated in the following ways:
If an update is not posted on the Board's website, it signifies that school transportation and school operations are running as usual. When school transportation is cancelled and/or schools are closed due to inclement weather the Board's website is updated as soon as this information becomes available. These updates are very visible at the top of each page of the website. Every effort is made to update the website with this information by 6:30 a.m.
Parents may also subscribe to email notifications regarding school transportation delays and cancellations through Halton Student Transportation Services.
Information relating to any transportation cancellations will be posted.
Parent Notification System
An email and/or telephone message will be sent to notify parents/guardians of school closures and school transportation cancellations. Please note that only parents who have provided their contact information and have opted for this service will receive the message.
