Empowering the Potential of All Students
Bus routes are now being designed on the principle of furthest out, first on. This lets buses take the most direct route from the outskirts of their route to the school and back to the homes. Efficiency also means buses are providing students the most direct route to and from school. We make efforts to eliminate bus transfers and lengthy waits before or after school whenever possible. We also try to make all bus rides as short as possible.
For the last several years, Westwind transportation supervisors used the best tools available to them at the time, but much of the work was manual and time-consuming. Within the last 12 months, the transportation technology has advanced significantly, and new transportation supervisor, Mr. Corey McCarthy has worked tirelessly to implement a GPS based system that has much greater capacity than previous tools.
Westwind School Division takes being a community partner very seriously across our region. We make sure that our facilities are open to community groups free of charge. We ensure that our parks and fields are well maintained and open to the public throughout the year. We recognize our value to our communities as one of the primary employers in the region and make efforts to keep all our schools and facilities viable and growing through the provision of high levels of service.
The first day back for students is coming up quickly. It is September 5 for all students. We've contacted all the schools for the important days at the beginning of the school year, and listed them below for you. Please check your school’s information and enjoy the beginning of the school year!
Westwind School Division urges all parents and guardians to please vaccinate their children to help ensure that our schools are welcoming, safe, and healthy places for everyone to come.
