Important Notice: Courtesy Seats Not Offered on School Buses - 2020/2021
Each year, in accordance with HSTS Procedure HS-1-004 – Courtesy Seats, families with children who are not otherwise eligible for school bus transportation to and from school are allowed to apply for courtesy seats on school buses.
Halton Student Transportation Services (HSTS) WILL NOT be able to accommodate courtesy seats for the 2020-2021 school year. Based on guidelines received from the Ministry of Education and in light of physical distancing measures that will need to be in place for September to prevent the spread of COVID-19, offering courtesy seats will not be feasible for next school year.
As a result, the courtesy seat application process is now CANCELLED for the 2020-2021 school year. Given the current measures in place for physical distancing, all applications received to date cannot be accommodated. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
Please be advised that Palermo Public School is currently closed as per government orders in response to the emergence of COVID-19 in the province. We are working remotely and staff can be reached by email.
