Students and families in Sioux Lookout are advised of bus service changes, as students transition from Queen Elizabeth to Sioux North next week.

The Northwestern Ontario Student Services Consortium says that the change may impact the timing of all school bus routes in the Sioux Lookout area, and staff are asking that all students – not just Sioux North students – be at their bus stop 10 minutes early next week.

All families with significant changes to their busing arrangements have been notified. Students and families are thanked for their patience and cooperation.

The new, 7,000 square foot school will replace Queen Elizabeth District High School, and is located next door to Sioux Mountain Public School. The building has space for students pursuing further education through Confederation College and Lakehead University, not to mention health services through the Meno-Ya-Win health centre, Firefly and Sick Kids hospital, and a cafeteria through the municipality of Sioux Lookout.

On top of a variety of community agencies, the school features state-of-the-art science facilities, a large stage, sound-proof music rooms, estechian facilities, a 21st century learning commons – otherwise known as a library, art facilities, an emphasis on natural lighting and much more.
