What happens if a student refuses to wear a mask on the bus (and in school)? Who monitors the rules on the bus?
We know that wearing a mask may be a new experience for children, and that’s why education and communication will be key in helping kids understand why it’s needed and how to wear it. We need parents and guardians and teachers to work with kids on getting used to it. We know it may take time for some students, and some students will have medical reasons for not wearing a mask. We are asking that families speak to their children, practice as part of usual getting ready for school routine. Our specialists are developing videos and tips for helping parents prepare their children for a different kind of school year.
