Annual STSCO First Rider

Will your children be riding a school bus for the first time this September?
Families of New JK Students: Please Plan to Attend our Annual First Rider Program The First Rider program is offered by Student Transportation Services of Central Ontario (STSCO) and local school bus operators.

Who can meet my child at the bus?

If your child is in JK - Grade 3, they must be met by a parent and/or guardian at the bus stop. If a parent and/or guardian is not available, please have another adult (i.e., Grandma, neighbour) introduce themselves to the driver and specify which child they are meeting. If there is any concern the driver will have dispatch call the parent/guardian to confirm before letting the child off of the bus. If an adult is not present to meet the child, the driver will keep the child on the bus until they are able to contact their parent and/or guardian for alternative arrangements.
