Putting your child on the school bus today? What to know
More than 8,000 elementary students in the Wake County Public School System will return for in-person learning on Monday, and many will be riding school buses with some new rules in place.
LOOK LIKE FOR KIDS, WE TURNED TO BRETT KNESE, LIVE FROM THE BUS YARD. >> Reporter: GOOD MORNING, NOT MANY BUS DRIVERS YET, THEY ARE STILL ON THEIR WAY IN BUT, THESE BUSES AND THE BUS DRIVERS WILL LOOK DIFFERENT FOR THE KIDS. THE SCHOOL BOARD IS ONLY ALLOWING THEM TO RUN AT ONE THIRD CAPACITY WHICH MEANS ABOUT 20 STUDENTS ARE GOING TO BE ALLOWED ON THE BUS AT FULL CAPACITY. THEY WILL HAVE TO WEAR FACE COVERINGS AND ONLY ONE STUDENT PER SEAT IS ALLOWED UNLESS THE SIBLINGS ARE SITTING TOGETHER. PARENTS MUST SIGN AN ATTESTATION FORM AGREEING THAT THEY AND THEIR CHILDREN WILL FOLLOW HEALTH AND SAFETY FOLLOW CROSS THE PROTOCOLS BUT YOU'LL HAVE TO DO IT ONCE IF YOU DO IT ONLINE. ONLY ONE TIME, NOT EACH DAY.
