COVID-19 PROTOCOLS FOR TRANSPORTATION:


Each bus will have a sign stating that masks are required. Students and drivers are expected to wear masks at all times on the bus. The buses will be disinfected twice daily. If the bus is used for more than one route, high touch points will be wiped down between routes. Hand sanitizer will be available on the bus. If it is raining, some windows will be opened partially, otherwise, several windows will remain fully opened, students need to dress appropriately during colder weather. To the extent possible, buses will load from the back to the front and unload from the front to the back.


2020-21 Subscription Busing


According to state law, the Bernards Township Board of Education must provide transportation to all students who reside at a location remote from school. "Remote from school" is defined by NJAC 6A: 27-1.2 as greater than two miles for grades K-8 and greater than two and one half miles for grades 9-12. Mileage is determined by taking the "shortest route along public roadways or public walkways from the entrance of the student's residence nearest such public roadway or public walkway to the nearest public entrance of the school that the student attends." If you are over these requirements, you do not need to sign up for the bus. You will automatically receive a bus pass prior to the start of school.

If you do not meet these requirements and wish your child(ren) to be transported to school during the next school year, you may sign up for the Subscription Busing Program. The full cost of the program for the 2020-21 school year is $844.00 per student. 

You may sign up by making an online payment. The online payment process also serves as a registration form and will provide a receipt for your records. If you would like to make an online payment, please click here and select subscription busing.

For questions regarding subscription busing payments, please contact Jennifer Nicholson at jnicholson@bernardsboe.com
