Safe Restart Opening Plan 2020-2021 » Transportation


The Varnett Public School encourages all families, with the ability to do so, to transport children to and from school.
  • All students will require a temperature check (taken by the bus driver) before boarding the bus. Any child exhibiting a fever will not be allowed to ride the bus.

  • Bus seating will be assigned.
  • All students will use hand sanitizer upon boarding the bus.
  • All bus drivers will wear face coverings.
  • All students will need to use non-medical grade face masks, covering nose and mouth while riding the bus.
  • Each bus will be sanitized between routes.
  • Transportation staff will be trained in proper sanitation procedures.
  • All Varnett vehicles will be equipped with sanitation and cleaning supplies.
