Will District Six still provide transportation for students this year?
We understand that thousands of students depend on us for transportation to and from school each day. We will offer transportation but our bus capacity will be limited to 50%, based on recomendations from public health officials and the State Department of Education. Parents are encouraged to bring their children to school if at all possible.

Will there be delays in bus transportation?
Running school buses at 50% capacity poses a great challenge for students who rely on bus transportation. We may need to run double routes in many cases and this may cause delays in pick-up and drop-off. We have added two additional buses in order to help address this challenge.
What safety measures are being followed for drivers and bus riders.
As our buses begin to hit the road again, we would like to do everything possible to keep our students and our drivers safe. We ask our parents to speak with their children about social distancing at bus stops. Depending upon our student ridership numbers this year, it may not be possible for all students to sit six feet apart from other riders. As an added safety measure, students will need to wear a mask while on the bus. We are also, enhancing the cleaning and disinfecting procedures for our bus fleet.
If my child is late to school because the bus is late, will they be counted as tardy.
