Getting children safely to school on time and back home again is our priority! Bus drivers are often the first school contact in the morning for our students, and our goal is help start their day off on the right foot. All of our drivers go through a rigorous hiring and training process before they begin serving our students and families.
It is important for you to talk with your child about ways to minimize physical contact with their peers and school staff. While we will work to create as much safe distancing as possible during the school day, it is unlikely that we can provide the six feet of distance recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Also, if you have reliable transportation to drive your child to school, we encourage you to do so as distancing will be difficult on our buses.
MASK AND SAFETY UPDATES
These changes are contingent on our continued monitoring of the COVID-19 case rates in our county, the state, and around the world. We are also working with health professionals and the Tulsa Health Department.
- We will continue to recommend that adults and children - particularly those who are unvaccinated - wear masks indoors and when in the presence of others.
- Starting on Monday, Nov. 29, we will no longer expect masking in buildings where individuals have been eligible for vaccination for several months - this includes our stand-alone high schools and district office sites.
- We are also hopeful that starting on Tuesday, Jan. 4, we will no longer expect masking in any of our buildings - this includes elementary schools, middle and junior high schools, and 6-12 school sites. Confirmation of that change will come before winter break.
- We will continue to follow the federal mandate for masking on public conveyances, so bus riders (and drivers) will wear masks traveling to and from school.
Layered safety practices
- When possible, we will maintain safe distancing.
- Adults entering buildings will continue check-in at welcome stations and complete a temperature check; staff will continue using our screen-and-go application.
- We will lift our visitor restrictions to allow volunteers - including parents and guardians who are volunteering - to enter our buildings. Volunteers must follow our safety protocols, and all parents and volunteers should understand the school practices.
Exposure tracking and quarantine
- We will continue to share counts of confirmed positive cases on a weekly basis.
- Quarantines for exposed individuals will no longer be required. Individuals may choose to self-quarantine, if they have been exposed. Isolations for individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 will continue to be required.
- Symptomatic or positive students or team members should stay home. Click here for our at-home health screening questions.
We provide bus transportation for:
- Non-transfer elementary students living 1.5 miles or more from their school; and
- Non-transfer middle-school, junior-high or high-school students living 2 miles or more from their school.
Buses may arrive up to 15 minutes after the scheduled stop time. Students should remain at the stop up to 15 minutes after the scheduled stop time. If students wait longer than 15 minutes, call 918-833-8100.
