Today the City of Swift Current announced that the 2nd Ave overpass will be completely closed for construction starting on Monday, May 2, 2016. This will affect some bus routes for city schools for the remainder of the school year.
If your child’s bus route time (drop-off or pick-up) will be adjusted, you will receive direct notice on Thursday, April 28 through our automated voice message Synrevoice system and your child will also receive a note from their bus driver at the end of the school day.
All city bus routes can expect occasional delays in drop off times at the end of the day caused by an increase in traffic and wait times at train crossings. We are working diligently to keep bus routes efficient and safe while we plan for the overpass closure, and we appreciate the patience and understanding of families, students and community members.
Bus #1013 (White Circle) to Ecole Centennial and All Saint Catholic Schools
-Starting Monday, May 2nd, the pickup time will be 5 minutes earlier in the morning
If you have any questions, please contact Tracy with First Student Bussing at (306) 741-1847
All families should be aware that their busses could be running late in the afternoon because of increased traffic at intersections and railway crossings.
For general questions and inquiries, please contact Holy Trinity Catholic School Division, Swift Current Office at (306) 778-4666 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to the City of Swift Current for their cooperation and accommodation of temporary bus parking at the iPlex for the north side routes.
