(updated 9/17) - New Caney ISD encourages all families, with the ability to do so, to transport their children to and from school. Bus transportation will be offered; however, the standard number of transported students compromises the ability to socially distance. For this reason, all students utilizing bus transportation will be required to wear a face mask, covering the nose and mouth, at all times on board. Wearing a face shield only does not provide the recommended level of protection. For students with a documented disability, the required use of PPE will be made on an individual basis and documented in the student’s Individual Education Plan (IEP) as appropriate.
- All students utilizing bus transportation will be required to wear face coverings/masks at all times on board.
- Hand sanitizer will be available when boarding the bus.
- All bus drivers will wear a face mask, covering the nose and mouth, at all times while on board.
- Buses will be cleaned/disinfected between each transportation run and at the end of the day.
- Transportation staff will be trained in proper cleaning/disinfecting procedures.
