*Students will have time to eat their lunch when they arrive at the mountain due to COVID regulations
on the bus children will not be able to eat on the bus nor will they have time at school at their
designated waiting area. Cafeteria snacks may still be purchased at Crabbe Mountain only after
instruction due to time restrictions and there may be limited options available to students this season
due to COVID restrictions.
Students must have their own ski pants, warm jacket, warm ski gloves, hat and warm dry socks. Ski
goggles would be an asset. As well, students may bring their own ski/snowboard equipment on the
Trius bus, however parents should contact the school to confirm they can bring their gear to school.
Keep in mind, students are not allowed to take skis/snowboards on Anglophone West District school
busses to school in the morning.
If a student is being picked up by a non-family member, a note must be written by the
parent/guardian to the Principal and the Crabbe Mountain staff. All students will return on the bus
unless a note is presented by the School Administrator. This is for safety concerns.
The Wednesday After School Program will be postponed on Days that children’s regular school is
cancelled or if a possible storm could affect driving conditions at the time of return for the bus from
Crabbe Mountain. The school will be contacted the morning of such an event. Days that are missed due
to storm cancelations will be made up for further in the season.
We may require a parent volunteer to wait with students until the bus arrives at some selected schools
as we may not have instructors to be able available to travel to every school. This would just be
meeting the children as they are dismissed and gathered in an area within the school with the children
until the bus arrives.
For questions regarding the Wednesday After School Program please contact.
