COVID-19 Transportation Procedures
We are taking extra safety and health precautions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 among bus riders, drivers -- and all staff and students in our schools. Parents must screen their children each day for fever, as well as any other symptoms related to COVID-19 and submit your child’s self-certification in PowerSchool before arriving at the bus stop.
ALL STUDENTS MUST WEAR A MASK WHILE RIDING THE BUS. We also ask for parents’ help in ensuring children practice physical distancing while at the bus stop. In addition, students must remain in their assigned seat for the entire route.
Riders have assigned seats for both inbound (to school) and outbound (to home) rides. Parents should make sure that children knows their seat assignment. Riders should arrive at the bus stop at least five minutes prior to the scheduled pick-up time.
