Back to school

Over the past several months, NPSSTS staff have been planning student transportation for the 2019-2020 school year on behalf of over 11,000 eligible students in the Nipissing and Parry Sound Districts.

To best ensure the safety and security of students, it is mandatory that they appear on the Route Manifest.

Those who do not appear on the manifest will not be permitted onto the bus.

It is imperative that parents verify their child’s bussing details to ensure that they are included on the route manifest on that very special day, the first day of school.

Parents are reminded to login to beginning August 12th, 2019 to ensure that their child’s transportation details are accurate and contact their respective School Board Office or the NPSSTS should there be any issues.

We’re working all summer!

School's out for the summer, but we're still working away! Our office is open all summer from Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., planning for a smooth first day back to school.

Transportation details will be available online through the Student Login beginning August 12, 2019. In the meantime, we'd be happy to hear from you, whether you have any questions about student transportation or wish to confirm the details we have on file for your children. Please note that changes to home or childcare addresses should be directed to the school board.
