Transportation Timelines for Next School Year

Will you be new to one of our schools in September?

Do you have a new Kindergarten student?                   

Is your family moving into the Division?

Do you have a child starting at a new school? 


August and September are very busy within our transportation department, and within the last couple of years, we have encountered situations where busses are full and some families are placed on wait lists.  

Please note that first priority for bussing is given to students who are funded by Alberta Education for transportation; however, there is often additional room/seats that may be filled on our busses. Students leaving their attendance area for a school of choice may access school bus transportation only if there is extra, uncommitted room on the bus and if Horizon School Division does not incur any additional expenses. 

To avoid delays in arranging transportation you will need to complete the necessary steps.

  1. Register at your school as early as possible. 
  2. If you are unsure about which school is your child’s designated school, please contact our division office.
  3. If you require non-designated transportation, please review policy IC – School Attendance Areas, and complete the Non Designated School Placement and Non-Designated Transportation prior to June 1st.

*NEW - If you have a NEW Non-Designated Transportation for the next school year – please note these applications will be reviewed/processed starting on September 15, 2019.  So, you will be required to transport your child until application is approved.
