“In accordance with federal requirements, students and staff will be required to wear face coverings while on NCSD Transportation and during transportation times at the Bus Hub,” the district notes. “NCSD will provide masks to staff and students as needed.”

“Students and staff will be highly encouraged to sanitize their hands upon entering and exiting the school bus. Hand sanitizer dispensers are located on each bus.”

Students will need to scan transportation cards when getting on and off buses. These transportation cards can be picked up during NCSD’s “Bus Hub Open House” from 4-7 p.m. August 26 or at the student’s back to school night.
