Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year. We are so pleased to have your children entrusted to our care. I would like to acknowledge and thank District Office and school staff for their professionalism and dedication. I am proud to be the Superintendent of Anglophone North School District.There are wonderful opportunities happening for students in all our schools across this diverse and geographically vast district. We continue to focus on achievement and global competencies in an inclusive and safe enviornment.
Requests for Alternate Bussing Arrangements (Bus Passes)As you are aware, the safety of your children, our students, is the utmost importance to us and this includes safe transportation to and from school. The amount of requests schools receive to place students on different school busses is a great concern. This becomes difficult for administration to monitor as a large number of alternate bus passes are being issued. Young students are often unsure where they are supposed to go and many may be unfamiliar to bus drivers.
