Summer Vacation starts in 72 days, on Saturday, June 30.

"Lots of buses to get you to and from school!"

My name is Gil Dionne, and I am now retired from my bus driver position for the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board.


strap on floor

Some children's clothing and backpacks have drawstrings or straps that can reach the floor when they descend stairs or the bus steps (see photo). Students like to hang keychains and other toys from their packs. These dangling objects can get caught on seat supports or can be stepped on by other students when entering or exiting the bus. A student behind them can step on one of these dangling objects and cause both students to trip and fall.

To prevent an injury, remove the hazard if possible, or at least shorten the string or strap by tying it in knots until it is no longer capable of reaching the floor. Cutting may cause the strap to fray, but dipping the cut end in glue may help seal the end.

I will continue to notify affected students to get parental help to eliminate this hazard.

What's New

Now retired. Not sure what to do with this website. I will keep it open for now. But because I am no longer an active driver, I am not "in the loop" when it comes to new information. I will do my best to keep the site current.

The School Calendar page has been updated with information from the newly released CCRSB Quick View Calendar for 2017-2018

Some pages on this site require that javascript be enabled, and that you allow your browser to show 'requested popups' (popups that you specifically ask for). None of the scripts used contain any harmful code. You can choose not to enable these features, but some 'frills' may not work properly.
