buses are running as normal.
NOTE REGARDING BUS STATUS TIMES - Willco updates the status box above when a bus is running outside the regular schedule. Although these messages are posted in a timely manner and appear immediately, the time stamp is not accurate. We are working on this issue and hope to have it resolved shortly. September 25, 2012
We are pleased to partner with Willco Transportation to provide city-wide transportation to our students.

Communicating Snow/Cold Days and Delays in Service
On school days, the school is always open. We always move forward with the assumption that buses will be operating. Each morning, school adminitration reviews the posted Government of Canada weather and determines if buses will be cancelled. If buses are cancelled, we notify local radio stations to have the information broadcasted. As well, an e-mail message will be sent by 7:45am to all families on the e-mail list. Regardless of whether or not the buses are operating, the school will remain open.
To access bus progress information call (403) 229-3010 and choose Option 2. This is the first line of communicating to parents about delays with the busses and is available to all Calgary Arts Academy families.
In addition, watch the top of this page for updates entered by Willco.
After school, check the top of this page, or contact Willco direct at (403) 242-1176.
Inquiries can be directed to the school at phone (403) 229-3010, or fax (403) 229-3034 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
