What safety protocols will be in place during arrival and dismissal?
School personnel may opt to increase the number of entrances used during arrival and dismissal. This may result in a change of plans for the parent pick-up lines. These decisions will be made on a school-by-school basis, and principals will communicate these plans with families prior to the start of school.
Will buses run as normal?
Yes, buses will be routed and run normally. It is highly recommended, if possible, for families to provide their own transportation as social distancing on a bus will be difficult to achieve.
Students will be assigned a seat on the bus. They will be expected to stay in that seat throughout the ride to/from school. They will be required to wait to be dismissed by their driver and school personnel to ensure distance is maintained among students from different families.
Will there be field trips?
All decisions regarding field trips will be made by CPS and reflect the current situation regarding exposure risk in our schools and community.
