It's All About the Pajamas and Pancakes

Harriet’s Heroes will be serving up delicious pancakesand we need your help! Our Pajamas and Pancakes Day is in support of the Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO). It is an opportunity for the students wear their favourite pjs and bust out the maple syrup, all while raising funds for kids with cancer. Postponed until further notice To date, Pajamas and Pancakes has raised over $250,000 in support of kids' cancer care, and, with Harriet Tubman’s help, they are hoping to reach their 2020 goal of $175 000!

2019-20 BACK TO SCHOOL
STUDENT TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION

On Monday, August 19, 2019 Niagara Student Transportation Services (NSTS) will post specific back to school transportation arrangements for each student enrolled, including bus route numbers, stop locations and times.
Please visit www.nsts.ca and sign-in to the secure parent portal to get your child’s student transportation information. To sign-in to the portal you will need your child’s Ontario Education Number (OEN) which can be found on their report card. While signed-in, please subscribe to the delay and cancellation module for direct and timely emails regarding student transportation that impacts your child’s bus route.
Eligibility information is also available through the portal including walking directions if your child lives within the walk zone of the school and is not eligible for transportation service.
Changes to home, pick-up or drop-off addresses must be made through your child’s school. During the summer you may notify NSTS of address changes so we can make sure a bus stop is available for your child to start the school year, however, NSTS is not authorized to change student address information.
With the availability of the secure parent portal, NSTS will not mail student transportation notices with the exception of Kindergarten students or new students to the system who do not have an OEN to sign-in to the portal.
Please contact your school or NSTS if you have questions regarding your child’s transportation arrangements. Phone: 905 357-6787 Website: www.nsts.ca Email: general@nsts.ca
