The Northern Lights School Division says busing for students at Pre-Cam and Gordon Denny elementary and Churchill high schools in the La Ronge area will resume next week.

Busing had been cancelled since Sept. 17 after the school division decided to terminate its contract with Allinone Conveyance Ltd., forcing about 700 students to find their own transportation to and from school.

In a press release, NLSD says busing will be provided by Northwinds Bus Lines Ltd, the company that previously held the contract, for the remainder of the 2018/2019 school year.

Service will resume for special needs students and those attending Gordon Denny on Monday and fully at all schools on Wednesday.

The press release does not say whether or not the new contract has been publicly tendered.
