For In-Person learning, PLSAS will review and evaluate school transportation capacity with the goal of creating as much space between riders as possible. In a Hybrid model, transportation would be set to 50% maximum capacity.
Creating mass additional routes is not feasible due to financial constraints and other factors. We are committed to securing the required number of drivers necessary to accommodate all routes.
The state requires face coverings for bus riders including students in kindergarten through grade 12. Students are welcomed and encouraged to supply and wear their own face coverings. Masks will be provided to those who do not have their own. Bus companies will provide face coverings for their employees.
Health and Safety
Transportation vehicles will be cleaned and disinfected following each route, with special attention to high-touch areas. Doors and windows will be kept open when cleaning the vehicle and between trips to let the vehicles thoroughly air out. Students must stay home and not board transportation if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone positive for COVID-19.
