In District Announcement

September 18, 2020

Dear FAPS Families,

We will be providing transportation for our students beginning October 1, 2020.

If you are utilizing our transportation services, please take time to review the following items  regarding our Return to School Plan:

  • Routes and bus stops will remain the same as 2019-2020.

  • Times for each bus route/stop will be available on our website on September 28, 2020.

  • Weather permitting, doors and windows will be opened when cleaning the vehicle and between trips to let the vehicles thoroughly air out.

  • Students will have assigned seats to help with contact tracing as needed, per the health department.

  • The bus driver, staff, and all students in grades Young 5’s-12 will wear facial coverings while on the bus.

  • If a student becomes sick during the day, they will not use group transportation to return home. If a driver becomes sick during the day, they will follow district protocols and will not return to drive students.

  • Students will be required to use hand sanitizer before entering the bus. Hand sanitizer will be supplied.

  • Transportation vehicles will be cleaned and disinfected before and after every transit route. Children will not be present when a vehicle is being cleaned.

  • Frequently touched surfaces in the vehicle will be cleaned and disinfected (i.e. surfaces in the driver’s cockpit, hard seats, armrests, door handles, light and air controls, doors, windows, and grab handles) before morning routes and before afternoon routes.

  • Equipment including items such as car seats, wheelchairs, walkers, and adaptive equipment being transported to schools will be cleaned daily.

  • Parents will take the student into the home if they are not allowed to board the bus due to COVID-19 symptoms.


Again, we are looking forward to bringing students back into our buildings. Safety is a priority.  If you have any questions, please contact Gayle Matthews at 810-591-8911 or email at


Dr. Adam Hartley
