(March 26, 2021) Clarification on K-5 Bus Safety

Dear Clarkstown Parents, Guardians and Staff:

I hope this communication finds you in good health and spirits.

This letter is intended to provide clarity regarding health and safety protocols for students in Grades K-5 who will be riding the bus beginning April 7.

All K-5 students who take CCSD transportation, regardless of the size of the bus or van, will need to wear a mask and a face shield to and from school. 

With increased numbers of students riding our buses on April 7, and the number of riders changing from day to day, we require this protocol to be in effect regardless of the daily passenger count.  This will allow our drivers to continue to place their focus on the safe transportation of our students.

We thank you for adhering to this health and safety protocol.

Stay strong!  Stay healthy!
