HFCRD Board of Trustees Approves Bussing Service from McLennan to High Prairie for 2017/18 School Year

  Posted: March 28, 2017

At the March 21st Regular Board Meeting, the Holy Family Catholic Regional Division (HFCRD) Board of Trustees approved the addition of a bussing service for grades 7 -12 McLennan students to St. Andrew’s School in High Prairie.  The service, which will begin in the 2017/18 school year, will provide direct 35 minute service right to St. Andrew’s School.  The bus will have three designated stops in McLennan, and will go directly to St. Andrew’s School daily.  The decision was made in response to community requests from families in McLennan seeking to provide Catholic education for their children.

“The Board is very excited to provide this bussing service for the families of McLennan.  Providing bussing will make Catholic education once again accessible to grades 7 to 12 students in the area,” said Board Chair Kelly Whalen.  “As a Board, we have wanted to provide this service for many years, and we are thrilled to have community support as we begin this new initiative.”

Currently, 6 to 8 families in McLennan have shown interest in the new bussing service.  Other interested families are encouraged to call 1-800-285-8712 for more information and to register their child.
