Masking now mandatory for Crisp school busses

Policy revealed the day before the start of the 2021 school year for Crisp students

CORDELE, GA – The day before the start of school, the Crisp County Board of Education says schools will follow the mandate requiring school bus operators and passengers to wear a mask while on school buses.

Thursday morning, the Crisp BOE released the following statement regarding the pandemic sensitive policy.

Following the most recent CDC guidelines published July 28, 2021, in regards to wearing masks on school buses, Crisp County Schools will follow the mandate requiring school bus operators and passengers to wear a mask while on school buses. This includes the driver and all passengers at all times while on a school bus.

Parents, please be sure your students have a mask and understand that it must be worn correctly while on any school bus. Students and other passengers will not be allowed on the school bus without properly wearing a mask.

Bus drivers will not provide masks to passengers. This means your student will not be allowed to board a school bus without properly wearing a mask. Parents will have to transport students from school if he/she does not have a mask at dismissal time.

Please understand, Crisp County Schools are taking precautionary measures to ensure the safety of everyone, and we will continue to follow the guidance of the CDC and our local health agencies.
