Transportation Information 2020-2021
Thank you for your continued support, patience, and understanding as we safely move forward with
our reopening plan. As you are likely aware, our transportation procedures have gone through a
number of adjustments in order to comply with State requirements concerning physical distancing.
This letter contains what we believe to be the most important updates for families; for a detailed
overview of school transportation please see pages 41-46 of the reopening plan.
Following the completion of the family choice selection process, we began the process of completing
routes to maximize the number of students we could transport while complying with physical
distancing requirements. Routes were completed on Sunday, September 7, and details will be
provided to families during Meet-n-Greet this week. The routes will be available on the District
Website as well.
ALL students must have a mask on to ride the bus. In the morning, we will load the bus from the
rear to the front. Students will sit in the window seat and remain there with their mask on for the
duration of the ride. Students are to remain in their seats until their driver instructs them to
disembark – this will be done using a color-coded system with all seats being in a colored zone of the
bus (colored and numbered stickers are by each bus seat). During warm weather months, all bus
windows and vents will remain open at all times to increase air circulation. The bus cleaning
procedures can be found in the reopening plan.
Please contact the Transportation Department (346-4010) or Mrs. Hill (Elementary - 346-4000 x.
5008) with any questions regarding routes. Due to guidelines from the State, we will be unable
to change students’ pick-up or drop-off location unless there is a permanent change or
relocation and will be unable to make in-day changes (for instance, dropping off at a friend’s
house). If your family relocates or has a permanent change in transportation needs, please reach out
to the transportation, department to determine if we are able to accommodate the change.
Please contact the Transportation Department with any questions,
Senior Bus Driver
