Our transportation team has been working hard to put in place the following new protocols:

  • All students must wear a mask before entering the bus and must keep the mask on for the duration of the commute.
  • Temperature checks for each student should be taken at home via the symptom monitoring app prior to using transportation. If a student riding a bus arrives at school and has not completed their symptom pre-screen, they may be sent home. All riders will be seated one per seat. Siblings will be able to sit together.
  • In the event we reach our capacity on any vehicle, we will send additional vehicles if possible.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available on each bus.
  • Drivers will have a face mask and may also have a face shield.
  • All vehicles will be sanitized once back at the transportation garage and between every route.
  • Physical distancing protocol will be followed as students enter and exit the transportation vehicle.
  • Windows will be open on transportation vehicles by empty seats to increase air circulation as weather permits.

This restart guide represents our best thinking, as well as that of experts at some of the top medical and educational institutions in the nation. Thank you to all of our medical advisors and peer schools for your guidance in helping to identify the specific protocols and resources referenced in this comprehensive plan.
