Reminder: Cancellation of School Buses Due to Winter Weather

Posted On Monday January 23, 2023

In the event that transportation services are cancelled due to inclement weather, both elementary and secondary schools located within the affected cancellation zone(s) will remain open.

In very rare situations, if a decision is made to close schools: 

  • Elementary schools located in the affected zone(s) would be closed. 
  • Secondary schools located in the affected zone(s) would switch to a virtual learning day for all students.

How will I be notified if transportation services are cancelled and/or schools are closed?

Families will be notified as soon as possible (no later than 7:00 a.m.) through a posting on the DDSB website, social media, and where possible, through local radio stations and media outlets.

What zone am I in?

Students and families can find a list of schools within each weather zone by visiting the Durham Student Transportation Services (DSTS) website.

  • Zone 1 (Brock Area)
  • Zone 2 (Uxbridge Area)
  • Zone 3 (Scugog Area)
  • Zone 4 (Pickering, Ajax, Whitby, Oshawa Area)
