The 2020-21 School Year - Safety Cleaning & Protocols
Rochester Community Schools and Durham School Services will be following the The Michigan Safe Schools: Michigan's 2020-21 Return To School Roadmap requirements. Our goal is to mitigate the opportunity of spreading the Covid-19 virus during school bus transportation. All buses will be cleaned and sanitized before the start of the 2020-2021 in-person school year. 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 interior of each bus will be cleaned after each transit run. Additionally, after the morning and afternoon bus runs, all buses will be cleaned using approved products. The State requirement also calls for face coverings to be worn by the bus driver and all occupants of the bus. Exceptions are outlined in the State's Return to School mandate. Please consult the document for additional details regarding what is required for school buses this fall.
