To support successful School Re-entry, First Student has implemented the practice of 'assigned seating' on buses for the 2020-2021 school year.
All students have been assigned seats on direct routes. Students are required to sit in their assigned seats in order to support contact tracing in the event of a confirmed COVID-19 exposure. We have had two instances where GPPSD students have been identified as close contacts to an individual who tested positive based on the seating plans provided by First Student. Consistent use of assigned seating supports our work in managing close contact identification.
Please reinforce with your children the importance of sitting in their assigned seats on the bus. Assigned seating allows us to quickly identify close contacts and minimize the number of students impacted by a positive case. If assigned seating is not followed, larger groups of students will need to be identified and the impact on students and families will be greater.
Thank you for your continued support in helping us keep our students and staff safe.
