Transportation

  • Lindbergh Schools, in partnership with First Student, has created this plan to ensure that students are transported to and from school in a safe and healthy manner.

    Plan Details

    • Families will be required to sign up for bus service for each student.
    • Bus service will be limited to:
      • Elementary school students who live more than .5 miles from school
      • Middle and high school students who live more than 1 mile from school
      • Considerations will be made to create safe walk-to-school zones and avoid hazards (ex: four-lane highways)
    • Bus service will be limited to transportation of students from home to school, and school to home.
    • After-school activity buses will not be provided.
    • Elementary schools will track ridership for contact tracing purposes.
    • Students will follow district health screening protocols when riding the bus.

Seating

    • All students will have an assigned seat.
    • Family members may sit together.
    • Buses will always load by seating students from back to front.
    • Buses will always unload by dismissing students from front to back.
    • All students must wear a face covering on the bus.
    • All bus riders must remain in their seats and must abstain from touching other students.
    • Students and family members should practice social distancing at bus stops and follow St. Louis County orders for wearing face coverings in public places.

Sanitation and Driver Safety

    • First Student will sanitize buses according to district-approved protocols.
    • Drivers will have temperature taken each day.
    • Drivers will wear face covering during their routes and have access to gloves.

Parent Drop-Off and Pickup

    • Parents transporting their student to and from school should follow their school’s arrival and dismissal protocols (please adhere to actual drop off and pick up times).
    • All drop off and pick up will occur outside the school building.
    • Schools will employ crossing guards to assist with student walkers and bike riders.
