​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The safety and well-being of students is priority for the Rolling River School Division.

Rolling River School Division transports approximately 900 students to and from school each day on 29 routes throughout the School Division.  In addition to the 29 route bus drivers, the School Division has 27 spare drivers that assist with routes when needed and with extra-curricular travel.  

To support safe school bus travel:

  • School Bus Drivers must successfully complete specialized training delivered by the School Division prior to being licensed as a school bus driver.
     
  • Responsible ridership is taught to students by classroom teachers and bus drivers.
     
  • The Superintendent, in consultation with the Transportation Supervisor, makes the decision regarding school bus travel on days with inclement weather. 
     
  • Every six months, all school buses receive a safety inspection completed by two certified mechanics / vehicle inspectors. 
     
  • In addition to safety inspections, day to day repairs, oil changes, etc. are completed by the Division's Mechanics at the school division garage located in Minnedosa, MB.

Parents can support the principles of safe school bus travel, both through discussion with their children who may ride the bus every day or for extra-curricular travel and while being a supervising parent on an extra-curricular trip

​Brochures related to school bus transportation and ridership are available under Resources.
