Bussing Information for the 2021-2022 School Year.

2021/2022 SCHOOL YEAR – Regular Education Transportation Grades K-12
Based on the CDC guidelines, the Londonderry School District will be following the following rules regarding
bussing of regular education transportation for Grades K-12.

MASKS:
Masks will be required for all drivers and students on regular transportation busses.
The CDC has mandated masks on all public transportation which they specifically say applies to school buses
traveling in state or in town. The CDC order specifically applies to School Buses regardless of the risk level in a
particular community. The CDC order by its terms, see below, is an authorized emergency action taken under the
CDC’s authority contained is 42 USC 264(a) and 42 CFR 70.2, 71.31(b) and 71.32(b).
School bus operators, including operations by public school districts, and their passengers are required to wear
masks as defined by the Order issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC Order
provides limited exemptions to the mask requirement for certain small categories of individuals, including
children under the age of 2; persons with disabilities who cannot wear a mask, or cannot safely wear a mask
because of a disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (42 U.S.C. 12101 et seq.); and persons for
whom wearing a mask would create a risk to workplace health, safety, or job duty.
The CDC states that passengers and drivers on school buses must wear a mask unless the driver is the only person
on the bus. This requirement applies to all school buses whether publicly or privately owned.

SEATING:
We are building bus routes to accommodate 2 students per bench.

ASSIGNED SEATS/SEATING CHARTS:
The bus company will have assigned seats/seating charts established by the end of the first week of school for
contact tracing purposes.

DAYCARES:
Due to current bus capacity limitations, we cannot provide transportation to or from the following daycares for
students in Grades 1-12: Applewood Learning Center, Creative Little Angels, Cozy Kids Child Care, Londonderry
Learning Academy, The Learning Tree, World of Discovery and the YMCA. Parents should contact these daycares
directly to discuss transportation.
Transportation will continue to/from ALL daycares for Moose Hill students.
The School District is building the bus routes from home addresses unless the District Office is contacted
immediately of an alternate address. Please email Lisa Muse at lmuse@londonderry.org and include the
Students Name, Home Address, Alternate address for bussing, School Attending and the Grade for the
2021/2022 year. Please note that this request does not guarantee transportation.
Like last year, EACH STUDENT WILL BE ALLOWED ONLY ONE ADDRESS (unless approved by the School District
due to a family situation)

We can assure you that these decisions are not made lightly. Many scenarios and options were discussed and
finalized based on what we think to be best for the School District, families and students.
If, at any time during the school year, we can adjust these decisions, we will notify all parents.
Sincerely,
Peter Curro
Chief Financial Officer
Londonderry School District
