Bus Registration

STAR Catholic provides busing service through a variety of options including cooperative busing agreements with public school boards which operate buses in areas where our students live.

Our Division provides transportation for students who live 2.4 km or further from their designated school and within our formed school boundaries. Students who live less than 2.4 kms of their designated school or outside the division formed boundaries may have the option of conditional busing. Please contact the Division Transportation Office at 780-986-2500 if you require more information.

Please complete the Busing Registration Form below by June 30th before the new school year. If you are new to the school, please complete your form as soon as possible.

You will receive your busing route by the last week of August. Registrations made after June 30 will be handled on a first come, first served basis. If there is not enough space on the bus, you may be put on a waiting list. Depending on when you complete your Busing Registration Form, it may take up to two weeks to process.
