Google Translate Limitations Disclaimer

The electronic translation service on the Toronto District School Board website is hosted by Google Translate, a third party service. The TDSB does not guarantee or warrant the reliability, accuracy or completeness of any translated information.

The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.

The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.

The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.

School Bus Responsibilities

The success of our transportation program depends on the cooperation of students, parents, school staff and the companies we work with.

Students’ responsibilities:

  • Be well behaved on the bus by not fighting, shouting or rough-housing on the bus
  • Follow the driver’s instructions
  • Be on time for pick-up

Parents’ responsibilities:

  • Ensure your child is at the designated bus stop on time
  • Maintain open communication with the driver about unique characteristics of your child (i.e. behavioural or medical concerns)
  • Inform the bus company if someone else is picking up your child or if your child will not be on the bus on a particular day before dismissal
  • Contact your school if you have any concerns about transportation

Drivers’ responsibilities:

  • Transport students safely to and from their school from their designated stop
  • Notify parents of any changes in pick-up or drop-off times
  • Ensure students are met by their parent or caregiver, if necessary
  • If a parent or caregiver is not there to meet a child, the driver has the following options:
  • Drop off the remaining students and return to the child’s drop-off location
  • Deliver the student to the emergency contact person if available and nearby
  • Return the student to the school
