East Hants Transportation Adjustment
As of Monday, April 10, 2017 an adjustment will be made to the transportation schedule between Sackville and East Hants.
Unfortunately, Stock transportation is no longer available to provide service in the morning. Newbridge Academy has exhausted other possible forms of transportation with no success, and therefore we will be forced to make two morning trips to the East Hants Sportsplex.
Our Grade 6-9 students are now required to be at the Sackville Sports Stadium before the 7:45am departure. Students in Grade 10-12 must be at the Sackville Sports Stadium before the 9:00am departure. This will result in a schedule change for the senior high students.
The senior high schedule will run as follows:
- Class 1: 9:30am-10:50am
- Class 2: 10:50am-12:10pm
- Lunch: 12:10pm-12:40pm
- Class 3: 12:40pm-2:00pm
- Class 4: 2:00pm-3:20pm
- Athletic Program: 3:20pm-4:20pm
The academic end of day transportation for grade 6-9 students will not change and all program times will remain in place. The end of day transportation for senior high students will depart at 4:30pm with the expected arrival time in Sackville at 5pm.
We apologize for the inconvenience. These changes are beyond our control, and we have adjusted the schedule to ensure there is no loss of learning with the least amount of impact on the daily transportation schedule.
This change has the added benefit of potential extra help before and after school as we approach the exam season. We believe students might find this advantageous and encourage them to utilize this opportunity when possible.
