The Washtenaw Intermediate School District, also known as WISD, says making sure school buses are safe for students to ride during COVID-19 is a priority for school districts that will offer in-person instruction in the fall.
WISD spokesperson Ashley Kryscynski says each district will be responsible for creating a school bus transportation plan for their students. However, all are required to follow Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s MI Safe Schools Roadmap that outlines safety measures for school buses during COVID-19.
Ashley Kryscynski: The use of hand sanitizer before entering the bus, hand sanitizer must be supplied on every bus. School bus drivers, staff and students in all grades from pre-K-12 need to wear a facial covering while they’re on the bus, if it’s medically feasible for them.
