The weather is constantly monitored by the Operations Department to ensure that our students are safe while they are on our buses and in our school buildings. We have emergency plans in place and weather emergency drills are a part of the educational process at CMCSS.
In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the Student Transportation Department has conducted a detailed transportation study. As a result, the District has decided to enhance our transportation service by requiring our buses to travel additional roads and by adding additional bus stops to many of our routes. This enhanced service will provide bus stops closer to many of our students’ homes and it will reduce the number of students using each bus stop, which will allow for more physical distancing between students at our bus stops. Parents are required to ensure that their students are at their assigned bus stop five minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive. The enhanced routes have combined our previous regular and inclement weather routes. We will provide this enhanced service every school day. Our buses will not travel additional roads or make additional stops during inclement weather. Students will be picked up and dropped off at the same bus stop every day.
In the event of closings or delays, employees should refer to policy HUM-A021 Leave Due to Inclement Weather and Other Emergencies.
