Our department, under the guidance of Risk Management, is continuously monitoring the directives and guidelines released by the Governor's Office, the California Department of Education, the California Department of Public Health, and local county health departments and agencies in an effort to comply with all policies and keep everyone's health and safety at the forefront at all times.
LET'S RIDE THIS OUT TOGETHER:
1. While waiting at the bus stop, students need to practice social distancing and stand 6 feet apart from each other.
2. All students/passengers must follow district policy as it pertains to wearing a face mask and/or faceshield.
3. Before boarding, all passengers will be required to get their temperature checked.
4. After boarding the bus, students must sit one student to a seat and must sit near the window.
Social Distancing on the Bus
Above is the sign your student will see as he/she enters the school bus. It states "PLEASE SIT HERE. WEAR YOUR SEATBELT". The image within the sign represents what is asked of all passengers that board the bus. Passengers must sit by a window, one to a seat. They must wear their mask and they must wear their seatbelt while being transported.

FIELD TRIPS DURING COVID-19
We are not accepting academic field trip entries at this time for the 2020-2021 school year. If policies change and it is deemed safe to travel, we will then allow access to submit transportation requests through Field Trip Request.
Acccording to a statement submitted by the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF), they anticipate that most section dates will commence in December 2020 or January 2021 however they too will be closely monitoring the climate of Covid-19 as students health and safety needs to remain the top priority.
