School Bell Time Changes for September 2019

Student Transportation of Eastern Ontario (STEO) is changing school bus pickup and drop off schedules for fall 2019 for CDSBEO and UCDSB in the Northwestern region of the school districts, affecting mainly Lanark County, Smiths Falls, and some schools in Leeds County. The changes will create a consistent 8:00 a.m. start time for most secondary schools, and start times for elementary schools between 9:15 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. St. Luke CHS will now have an 8:30 a.m. start time. Parents will have received a letter which went home with their child yesterday, as well, a parent survey to collect feedback on childcare requirements in light of these changes was included for families with children in grades JK to grade 6. Please ensure that these surveys are returned to the school before June 7, 2019. To learn more about specific changes to school bus service, or call STEO at 1.855.441.1589.
