Before you student boards the bus:

  • Families will screen for COVID-19 symptoms at home before student boards the bus. 
  • Face coverings are optional for all students and staff when riding EPS transportation; face coverings are strongly recommended for those with known exposures to COVID-19 and required for those returning from a shortened (5-day) isolation period. 

On the bus:

  • Riders will be encouraged to physically distance to the extent possible.
  • Some windows will remain open for increased air circulation (weather permitting).

Between routes:

  • Bus seats, rails, grab handles, seat belts, windows will be cleaned between routes.
  • An electrostatic sprayer (“fogger”) will be used to disinfect each bus between AM and PM runs, and again at the end of the day.




Students and staff should self screen for COVID-19 symptoms every day before coming to school. Visit our At-Home COVID Screening for Students and Staff page for more information.


Please Note: Plexiglass shields between the driver and the door were considered, however the Minnesota State Highway Patrol does not allow plexiglass barriers on school buses due to safety concerns.
