The 2021 - 2022 School Year - Safety Cleaning & Protocols
Rochester Community Schools and Durham School Services will continue to follow practices from the 2020-2021 school year as it relates to cleaning/sanitizing on school buses. The C.D.C. mandates face coverings (masks) to be worn by the bus driver and all occupants of public transportation, including the school bus. Our goal is to mitigate the opportunity to spread the Covid-19 virus during school bus transportation. Hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol will be permanently mounted on each bus so that each student will be able to access the sanitizer as he/she enters the bus. The high-touch areas on the interior of each bus will be cleaned after each run. Additionally, the buses will be sanitized using electrostatic sprayers at the end of the morning and afternoon bus routes.
