Covid-19 Transportation Guidelines

Tri-Board regularly consults with our Member School Boards and local Public Health Units to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within our communities. These guidelines and requirements are subject to change.

Self-Screening & Isolation

All Drivers, Monitors, and students must self-screen every day and not board the bus if they are sick/ show symptoms consistent with COVID-19, based on the COVID-19 Self-Screening tool and follow directions from Public Health.

Mask Requirements

Masks are optional for all Drivers, Monitors, and Students during transportation. The decision to wear a mask or not is a personal choice that must be respected by everyone.  Buses will not have extra masks for riders.

Vehicle Cleaning Requirements

Enhanced vehicle cleaning is no longer a part of the COVID-19 Health & Safety Response.

Assigned Seating Plans

Seating plans do not need to account for cohorting and are no longer a part of the COVID-19 Health and Safety Response. Drivers may still enforce seating plans for student behaviour management.

Opt-Out of Transportation

We understand every family has a different comfort level when it comes to COVID-19. Fill out this form if you do not intend to use the school bus and have previously registered. If you require transportation in the future, you will have to reapply.
