Welcome to the Student Transportation of Eastern Ontario


Cold Weather Information

As the weather becomes colder and potentially more severe, it’s important for parents and students to remember to dress warmly and plan ahead, especially when it comes to waiting for a school transportation vehicle.  STEO reminds everyone that they should be prepared for potentially bad weather conditions. Here’s what you need to know….

  1. Parents/guardians always make the final decision as to whether or not it is safe to send their child to school. If parents decide to send their child to school when the weather is severe, the school will be open to receive them. No student will ever be reprimanded for missing school in bad weather.
  2. Students, should be well prepared for extreme weather and have very clear instructions on what to do if the school vehicle does not arrive.  Parents should have back-up arrangements in case of an emergency. That plan should be communicated with children, the school and the bus company.
  3. Schools rarely close due to snow or cold temperatures. Assume that schools are open unless you hear otherwise through the media or our website. Link to our Homepage here: Link to STEO Homepage
  4. Schools remain open even under the most severe weather conditions to provide attending students with a safe and secure environment.
