Q: What are the bell schedules for the 2020-2021 school year?
A: Due to new transportation guidelines related to COVID-19, the Transportation Department has proposed new bell times for middle and high schools, and Stallings Elementary. School buses will operate at a reduced capacity with one student per seat,
to allow for social distancing. In addition, double runs will be increased and bus stops will be consolidated to shorten routes. The Board of Education will vote on the final bell schedule at the August 4 meeting.
