School Bus Program
Did You Know?
Do you know someone in Kindergarten to Grade 8 that would like to be part of the Luther Family? Encourage them to join the Future Luther Student program!
Luther students, even though from diverse social and cultural backgrounds, have the opportunity to be part of tightly woven community of students, parents, alumni, teachers and staff. Typically 12% of the school’s student body originates from outside of Canada.
The first LIT was held on January 31, 1953. That year it was a one-day tournament involving sixteen teams from Southern Saskatchewan. All preliminary games were played cross court, two games at a time.
Did you know there is a 3rd floor to the boy's dorm? It was traditionally assigned to upper level students who were more mature & responsible. Students who lived up there in the 1940’s confessed, in hushed tones, to having a radio when those devices were against school policy.
Luther graduates have gone on to universities such as Harvard, Oxford, Pennsylvania State, McGill, Queen’s and other renowned educational institutions throughout Canada, North America and the world.
The choral tradition at Luther began in 1914. In addition to in-school performances, the choir has shared its ministry of music with many congregations across Canada and has performed regularly on local and national radio and television shows, at contests and festivals.
Students admitted to Luther College are not required to be Lutheran or Christian. By welcoming students of all faiths and religious backgrounds, Luther College enjoys a richly diverse student body.
Through the A Time To Build capital campaign, we have added 46,897 square feet of space to Luther College High School, including the Semple gymnasium - the largest high school gym in Regina.
School Bus Program
There are several routes within the city serviced by the Luther College High School bus program. As well, bus service is offered to rural residents with a pickup/drop-off at a central point in White City. Periodically, routes may be altered slightly depending on where the students participating in the program live. Only students enrolled at Luther College High School are eligible to use this service. Bussing begins on the second day of classes in the first semester and the first day of classes in the second semester.
Costs for 2017-18 are as follows (per semester):
2-way service in Regina - $295.00
1 way service in Regina - $185.00
2 way service from White City - $405.00
1 way service from White City - $240.00
Please note: a single ride bus pass may be purchased from the office. Costs will vary. Single-month passes are not offered. Refunds will not be issued once the semester begins.
How To Register
We strongly encourage you to submit your registrations as soon as possible to reserve a spot for your student(s) and to assist the main office and bus company in planning the best routes possible for the upcoming semester. Registrations for bus for the second semester will open in November 2017.
Bus payments are due in the main office upon registration; and, therefore, will not be processed in the Finance Office. You may scan and email the credit card form, mail in your payment or phone in your credit card number to the main office. Registrations without payments cannot be forwarded to our service provider.
Pick up times varies within the city. For the rural route, students are picked up at approximately 7:00 a.m. in White City. All buses depart at approximately 3:30 p.m. from Luther College High School. This schedule may be altered on days when there is early dismissal or special events.
In situations where the bus company in conjunction with Luther College has decided to cancel bus service, parents will be notified via email from the bus service provider (First Bus). Cancellations may occur due to severe weather or unsafe driving conditions. There will also be notifications on the following websites:
- Luther College website – www.luthercollege.edu/highschool
