While the Illinois State Board of Education allows up to fifty (50) individuals in one place, the school district does not feel this is in the best interests of our student's safety. Therefore the school district is collaborating with its pupil transportation vendors to implement the following:

  • Whenever possible, parents are encouraged to drive their own children to school.
  • All drivers and transportation personnel will be required to wear face coverings.
  • All schools will conduct temperature and symptom screenings. Based on ISBE guidelines, parents and/or guardians are required to complete symptoms and temperature checks daily prior to students boarding a bus.
  • No more than one child per seat on a school bus with the exception that children from the same household may sit in the same seat.
  • All students will be required to wear a face-covering on the school bus.
  • All students will have assigned seats. Students will be seated using a back to front pattern (first student on board proceeds to the rear of the bus and seats are occupied forward from there.)
  • All students will be required to maintain social distancing to the greatest extent possible
  • Cleaning of buses:
    • The District has requested from its pupil transportation vendors the details of a disinfecting and sanitizing plan for each bus/vehicle that transports our students that will include how a bus/vehicle will be disinfected and sanitized and what products will be used.
    • The District is requiring the vendors to have the buses/vehicles disinfected and sanitized daily.
    • Upon receipt of the vendors’ plans, the District will review them for acceptance prior to the vendor initiating them.
