This year, there are 11 buses coming and going at WEJ each day. In addition, there are 3 taxi vans. The Transportation Authority has decreased the distance whereby students are eligible for the bus. In past years, the distance was further than 3km. This year, the distance is further than 1.6km. In a nutshell, this means that many more students have become eligible for the bus. This also means that we can no longer accommodate car traffic here at WEJ. Parents are strongly encouraged to put their children on the bus right from the beginning of the year. This will be the best way to ensure a timely and safe arrival.
To determine your child’s bus stop information, please visit the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority’s website, posted here: http://www.ottawaschoolbus.ca/
Car and parent traffic on the school property is not longer possible. Parent drop off will occur on the lay-by on Varley drive. The traffic flow on the school property is reserved exclusively for staff parking and school buses. Parents who wish to park and walk their children onto the property will have to park along an adjacent side street.
