Welcome to Senator Gibson Public School

Welcome Back Gators!!!

We are excited to welcome all of our staff and students back to school for our 2015-2016 school year!


We have had a large number of registrations this week which has required us to re-organize class lists. As a result we will not be posting class lists tomorrow, Thursday, September 3rd from 9:00 to noon. On Tuesday morning, all staff will be outside with class lists letting students know what class they are in and directing them to the appropriate areas. We look forward to seeing all of you then!

2015-2016 School Year Calendar


On August 17, 2015 Niagara Student Transportation Services (NSTS) will post specific back to school transportation arrangements for each student enrolled at the school. Please visit www.nsts.ca and sign-in to the secure parent portal to get your child’s student transportation information. To sign-in to the portal you will need your child’s Ontario Education Number (OEN) which can be found on their report card. While you are there, please subscribe to the delay and cancellation module for direct and timely emails regarding student transportation that impacts your child.

Changes to home, pick-up and/or drop-off addresses must be made through your child’s school. During the summer you may notify NSTS of address changes so a bus stop is available for your child to start the school year. However, NSTS is not authorized to change student address information.

With the availability of the secure parent portal, NSTS will not mail student transportation notices with the exception of Kindergarten students or new students to the system who do not have an OEN to sign-in to the portal

Please contact your school or NSTS at www.nsts.ca or call 905 346-0290 if you have questions regarding your child’s transportation arrangements.
