Bus Safety and CBC Television

Dear Parents/Guardians:

We would like to inform you that on Tuesday, September 23, 2014 CBC Television will be using a mounted camera (a GoPro style) on Bus Run 10 as part of the ongoing stories they have been airing on bus safety.

The purpose of this camera is to illustrate proper procedures for buses picking up and dropping off students and to possibly capture improper passing by traffic.

While we have requested that CBC not show images of students, we wanted to inform you of this story and the use of the camera.

Should you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Sincerely,

Wayne Rodgers
Principal
