Bus cancellation information in case of inclement weatherhttp://pss.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/board-news/20Bus cancellation information in case of inclement weather<p>​Although fall has just arrived, winter is just around the corner in Simcoe County. With it comes the possibility of severe weather, challenging winter driving conditions and, as a result, possible bus and school event cancellations. </p><p>All information regarding cancelled buses in Simcoe County is posted on the Simcoe County Student Transportation Consortium's bus information website at <a href="http://www.simcoecountyschoolbus.ca/" target="_blank"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">www.simcoecountyschoolbus.ca</span></a>.  Check our <a href="/about-us/transportation">Transportation</a> page to see which zone our school is in. When buses are cancelled, please remember that schools are still open (unless otherwise noted) for student learning.  </p><p>The Consortium, in conjunction with bus operators, will make the decision to cancel school buses before 6 a.m. and as such, will make every effort to post announcements between 6 and 7 a.m. Parents should also note that inclement weather cancellations are effective for the whole day and buses cancelled in the morning will not run at the end of the day.</p><p>You can also subscribe to receive bus delay notifications here: <a href="https://scstc.ca/Subscriptions" target="_blank"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">https://scstc.ca/Subscriptions</span></a> and you can follow the Consortium on Twitter <a href="https://twitter.com/SCSTC_SchoolBus" target="_blank">@SCSTC_SchoolBus</a>.</p>
PSS Students do a GREAT Job at the "Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup"http://pss.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/4PSS Students do a GREAT Job at the "Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup"<p>On Saturday Sept. 27th a small, but dedicated, group of staff and students from PSS travelled to Christian Island to participate in the "Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup".</p><p>Participants were up at 6 am, on the bus at 7, boarded the ferry for Christian Island at 8, and finally arrived at West Beach on the island by 9. There, they were joined by many community members from Christian Island. Together these folks set out to scour the beach for litter and debris. Over 200 pounds of litter was collected from more than 2 kilometres of beautiful West Beach.</p><p>Mr. Thompson and Mr. Wilson would like to thank all the PSS students who participated, and also recognize the support of the Beausoleil First Nation Lands, Education, and Transportation departments who helped make this event a success. A special thanks goes out to Mr. MacIsaac for providing the bus for the day.</p>
Terry Fox Run a Huge Successhttp://pss.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/3Terry Fox Run a Huge Success<p>​On Thursday, September 25th, PSS students and staff participated in our annual Terry Fox Run. The event was a great success and after calculating the total donations that PSS gathered, we discovered that we raised $359.58. Although we were short of our initial goal, a toonie for every PSS student, the money collected represents a sincere effort and appreciation for such a worthy cause, The Terry Fox Foundation. This foundation not only raises money for cancer research, but also strives to maintain and continue to recognize the heroic effort and integrity that Terry embodied.</p><p>With clear blue skies and accommodating temperatures, our school walk was enjoyed by all, rewarded with a huge thank you of snacks.  As well, congratulations to Mr. Mullin's Grade 11 Chemistry class for raising the most money. Thank you to Mr. MacIsaac, Mrs. Lapp and Mr. McLaren and all the other teachers and students who helped make the day run as smoothly as it did. Thank you to everyone who donated and participated, you have all made someone's life a little brighter.  </p>
