It is quite common during the school year for the Transportation Department to review routes to ensure buses are running efficiently and student travel time is kept to a minimum where possible. Recently, we have been examining the routes in the New Ross area and will be making minor changes to the morning runs.

Students who travel to FHCS from New Ross School will transfer to Route 315 Sheldon Broome for a direct route to FHCS.
Please ensure your students are waiting at the bus stop 5 minutes before the scheduled pick up time. Please note, there have been no changes to the PM Routes.
At the South Shore Regional School Board Annual General Meeting, held on Wednesday, November 26, 2014, a new Chair and Vice Chair were elected.
For the position of Chair, Board Member Garber was voted in by acclamation and for the position of Vice Chair there was competition resulting in a vote between Board Member Naugler and Board Member Fougere. Following a tie vote, the SSRSB Board By-Laws were followed and a name was drawn. Board Member Fougere was selected as Vice Chair.
"I’m looking forward to working with Vice Chair Fougere and all Board Members as Chair of the South Shore Regional School Board,” said Elmer Garber. “This Board has made significant progress in the past two years in terms of creating a focus on student achievement through improved classroom instruction. There remain significant challenges for all School Boards in Nova Scotia. In spite of this, the Board remains dedicated to providing an educational environment which promotes student engagement and achievement. I would also like to thank the previous Board Chair, Jennifer Naugler and Vice Chair, Elliott Payzant for their hard work and dedication over the past couple of years”.
The SSRSB will continue to meet for Committee of the Whole Board Meetings on the second Wednesday of each month, Education Sessions on the third Wednesday of each month and regular Board Meetings on the fourth Wednesday of each month. All meetings are open to the public. Check the School Board’s website for meeting dates and agendas at ssrsb.ca
