Fog Condition Procedures for Bus Students

MEMORANDUM TO PARENTS/GUARDIANS OF ALL BUS PARENTS

SUBJECT: FOG CONDITIONS

Further to a procedure that was put in place in 2005 in all areas, we wished to remind you of the Fog
Condition Procedure. This is the time of year where our operating area can have fog conditions
resulting in poor or no visibility. Please be aware,

“If a driver is unable to make a scheduled stop safely because of poor visibility due to
fog, the driver has full discretion on whether he/she stops.”

This means that that a student(s) could be left standing at their stop or conversely not dropped off at
their stop in the afternoon. It is the responsibility of the Consortium to ensure that all bus stops are
safe, not only for the students boarding/disembarking but also safe for the students and driver who are
already on the bus. This procedure is in place for safety reasons for your children as well as oncoming
motorists or following traffic whose visibility is also compromised. Safety and conduct of students to
and from the bus stop/service is the responsibility of the parent. We request that you discuss the
possibility of this happening with your children and work out a plan if the bus goes right by.

Thank you.
