A reminder to parents/guardians of bus students:

 
Please remember to contact the Transportation Office if your son/ daughter will be absent from riding the bus. Parents may communicate by either calling 204-729-3975 or by sending a note with the student for their driver.
 
Please also contact the Transportation Office if a bus student's contact information has changed, if a friend is riding with them, or if other pick up /drop off arrangements are being made.

 
The safety and well-being of our students is priority for the Brandon School Division, your communication is appreciated.
The Brandon School Division transports approximately 1700 students to and from school each day. The buses are equipped with safety strobe lights on the roof for increased visibility. There are two critical notes for traffic when dealing with school buses: 1) If the red lights are flashing and/or the stop sign is out, all traffic in both directions must stop. The fine for not stopping is $655.65 and demerits and it is the duty of the bus driver to report all offenders. 2) School Bus Loading Zones are for the exclusive use of school buses.
