APS encourages families to make transportation decisions that they believe are best for their children.
In preparation for our Phase II reopening plan, our transportation department has conducted extensive cleaning of our buses and has implemented ongoing cleaning protocols as buses are in use. The district is planning to service all APS elementary bus stops along with Centennial Academy and Gideons Elementary School. We are planning and preparing for all students with disabilities on our elementary school routes. The district encourages all bus riders to wear masks and maintain physical distance, but it is likely not possible to consistently maintain the recommended 6-feet social distancing on school buses. Families may pursue other transportation options.
As usual, our bus route information will be posted on web query. We will be mailing postcards to our elementary school riders with more transportation information before the district’s Phase II reopening on October 26, 2020.
