The first step to planning how your child gets to and
from school for the 2015-2016 school year is to find out if they are eligible
If you are the parent or guardian of a child heading to
either one of the Renfrew County Catholic
schools or Renfrew County Public schools, you should already have received a letter
indicating your bus and ride time information and your log on credentials to the
Renfrew County Joint Transportation Consortium (RCJTC) secure web site at www.onthebus.ca. Depending on where you live, or where your
caregiver lives, you may be eligible for transportation. If your student is not
eligible to ride the bus, that usually means he or she is in the school's
designated walk zone. Parents and students should familiarize themselves with
their transportation arrangements before the school year begins.
And don't forget to subscribe to the RCJTC mailing list
for important notices and school bus cancellations or delays. The RCJTC office
is open all summer to answer your questions. See you all on Tuesday September 1st,
2015 to continue the journey together.
