The Lester B. Pearson School Board has informed parents that service on some of its bus routes may be slowed.

"Dear parents,

We would like to inform you that there may be some transportation delays at the end of the school day on Friday, January 28th, 2022.

There is a truck convoy scheduled to convene in Vaudreuil at 2:00 pm.   We have been informed that some of the traffic routes that will be used include the Mercier Bridge, Highway 20 and Highway 40.  Our bus carriers are aware of the possible traffic jams that may be created on the highway and side streets.  There may be deviations from the original route to avoid the congestion. 

Although every effort will be made to retain the existing bus schedules, some delays may occur which are out of our control."
