You will have seen that the transport contract with Stagecoach has come to an end and that we now have a new school transport contract with Sheil Buses. We are preparing for a seamless transition and I have every faith that it will be so. However, to reassure parents and pupils, I wanted to let you know that, even if you/your child does not have a bus pass, Sheil Buses do know how many pupils we have on roll, are aware of our pupil numbers and will be putting on buses that have sufficient seats with seat belts. Sheil Buses have also said that they will give the youngsters at least a 2 week grace period to give Highland Council enough time to sort out bus passes etc. This information is currently being prepared by the Highland Council Transport Office.
