Transportation Route Schedules:

All 2014-2015 Transportation Route Schedules are posted on the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority website at www.ottawaschoolbus.ca. In addition to the bus route schedules being posted, please note that there is also a “Stop Locator” feature on our website. This feature allows parents to access bus stop information for their children for the 2014-2015 bus route schedules. The “Stop Locator” feature returns bus stop and route information for eligible students who are assigned to regular “yellow school bus” service or for eligible students who are assigned to OC Transpo Service.

 Primary Playground Renewal

DRK School Council has organized a Playground Renewal project and has already raised $6,000 towards a new structure.  

Are you interested in what the new structure will look like? Do you have ideas for other improvements to the primary yard? See our presentation to School Council for more information on the initiative. 

To get involved, please contact the Playground Committee by emailing Jena at jena.cameron@bellnet.ca
