Bus Transportation

The safety of our students while traveling to and from campus on a school bus is paramount. In an effort to reduce the risk of exposure of our students to COVID-19 we have implemented protocols for students being transported to school on buses.

For more information, please view the Bus Transportation page in the Parent Portal (log in required)

  • Parents/students must ensure that they have completed the daily-health screening via the mobile app prior to their student boarding the bus. If a student arrives at school without having completed the daily health screening, they will not be permitted to enter the campus until it has been completed.

  • S
    tudents should socially distance themselves from peers and should wear a face covering while waiting for the bus.

  • Hand-sanitizer units will be available at the entrance of all buses for students to clean their hands when boarding the bus.

  • Bus drivers and students are required to wear face coverings AT ALL TIMES while traveling on the bus.

  • Students will be seated no more than one student per bench, alternating sides for each row. This allows students to maintain approximately 3 feet of physical distance (which is in accordance with guidance from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education). Students will be assigned to a particular seat on the bus.

  • Windows will be open at all times during operation, unless not possible due to extreme weather conditions.

  • Any student that develops COVID-19 symptoms while at school will not be permitted to return home on a school bus and will need to be picked up by a parent or guardian.

  • We will work closely with our bus-transportation partner, Bedford Charter, to ensure that all of our buses are cleaned and disinfected daily.
