Mask requirements on school buses
Tue, Jan 25 1:56pm

We are of course following the news on potential changes to mask wearing. For now, masks are required daily and all day unless there is a medically approved accommodation. Below is the guideline for mask wearing on school buses.  

 

Face Coverings on School Buses

All students, drivers, and attendants are required to wear face coverings on the bus, except if approved for a medical exemption. See below for more information on a medical exemption. If a student does not have a face covering, the bus driver will distribute one.

Students with a medical exemption will not be required to wear a face covering on the bus, but must maintain at least six feet of physical distance from the driver or other passengers on the bus to the greatest extent possible.

Students without a medical exemption but who need support because they struggle with wearing a face covering due to a documented medical, social-emotional, or developmental impairment:

  • Will be reminded to wear the face covering,
  • Will be permitted to have mask breaks, as defined above,
  • Must remain physically distant from the other passengers.

The attendant must remind students to wear the face covering if they remove it. Face covering breaks may be allowed for brief periods as necessary.
