Flooding affects school bus routes

Some roads and bus stops may not be accessible in Kelowna and area

Due to localized flooding in the Central Okanagan, some roads and bus stops may not be accessible to the School District transportation system.

Parents are encouraged to check that their child’s bus stop is accessible before sending them to their designated stop.

If the street the bus stop is located on is closed to traffic, parents are asked to take their child to the next closest available bus stop for pick-up.

At the end of the school day, if a regular bus stop remains closed to traffic, bus drivers are instructed to drop the students at the closest available safe stop on the route.

Parents can check school bus route stops at:

http://www.sd23.bc.ca/ProgramsServices/SchoolBus/routes/Pages/default.aspx.

For further information on the flooded areas, parents can go to: https://www.cordemergency.ca/.

In addition, updated information will be posted on the School District website: www.sd23.bc.ca. Parents can

also call the School District Transportation Department at 250-870-5151.
