Edmonton Transit (ETS) is the preferred means of student transportation, but where Edmonton Transit to the designated school is not appropriate or available, Student Transportation arranges for yellow bus service. Call 780-429-8585 for more details.

Schools are able to charge fees for instructional materials in two areas: textbook rentals/security deposits and musical instrument rentals. When it comes to fees for non-instructional materials, costs are determined by each school and may include things like field trips, lunch room supervision and custodial maintenance over the noon hour at the elementary level, or locks for lockers, student agendas, yearbooks and materials required to enhance a course or subject (calculators, food study courses, art and music enrichment, etc.) in junior high and high school.
Fees may be waived for families with exceptional financial circumstances-contact your school principal to learn more.
Every school varies in the type of school supplies required for your child's grade. Contact your school or visit SchoolZone for more information.
