Wilson Public Schools Transportation Parent Letter

August 4, 2020


Dear Parents,

As we begin the new school year, we are working diligently to provide a safe learning environment for our students.  We know that many of our students currently ride the bus to and from school each day.  We will continue to provide this option.  However, we do encourage anyone that has the ability to transport their own students, to please do so.  

Students that do ride the bus will be required to sit in their “assigned” seat each day. We will be keeping a log of all bus riders and their seat location. This will prove helpful in contact tracing should we have a positive COVID case in the future.  Also note, NO one will be allowed to be on the bus or at school if they have a fever of 100 degrees or higher.  This is for the safety of all faculty, staff and students. Drivers and students will be provided and required to wear masks while on the bus. 

We want parents to know that along with the seating charts, daily cleaning and as much social distancing as possible, we will also be increasing air flow, which will include having more windows down during the bus routes.  We are following CDC guidelines and will do whatever is necessary to keep our students safe. 

As always, your child’s safety is our top priority.  We hope that you have a wonderful summer break and we look forward to the upcoming school year.
