As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are altering many of our practices to  try and reduce the risk of viral spread.


Sanitization Process

  • School Buses will be sanitized between and after each bus route
  • Seats will be sprayed with a disinfectant cleaner (HOCl)
  • Handrails will be sprayed and wiped down with the same disinfectant cleaner
