IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT STUDENT TRANSPORTATION UNDER THE CONVENTIONAL MODEL OF RETURN TO LEARNING:
As per Ontario Ministry of Education guidelines, there are NO RESTRICTIONS ON SCHOOL BUS SEATING CAPACITY and the use of NON-MEDICAL MASKS for all students in Grades 1 to 12 will be required on all school vehicles. Students in Kindergarten are encouraged but not required to wear masks on student transportation.
High touch surfaces in school vehicles will be DISINFECTED TWO TO THREE TIMES DAILY, following each of the morning, midday and afternoon runs. Note that most school buses service multiple schools and groups of students and are not sterile environments due to the number and frequency of passengers .
Masks must be worn by school bus drivers when students are on board and face shields will be provided, however eye protection must not interfere with the safe operation of the vehicle. Driver face shields are recommended while unmasked students (ie. Kindergarten) are boarding and de-boarding or during any situation in which they may be in close contact to students not wearing a mask.
