School District

Safe Return-to-School Plan

Dear Deer Lakes Families, 

At the last board meeting on July 20, 2021, the Deer Lakes School Board voted to approve our District health and safety plan. 


Transportation Rules and Protocols

  1. Should a family opt to drive their child to school, that does not take away the bus option. Students may still utilize their assigned school bus on any given day.

  2. The school district strongly encourages student drivers at the high school level. Students will still be required to submit vehicle registration information.

  3. School buses will be disinfected after the morning run and again after the afternoon run. Hand sanitizer will not be available on the bus but will be available at your child’s school.

  4. Parents are strongly encouraged to assist with providing transportation to and from school to help promote social distancing.

  5. Should your child forget his or her protective face covering, one will be provided when boarding the buses.

  6. Social distancing will be encouraged at bus stops.

  7. School buses will be cleared and sanitized daily using electrostatic cleaners.

  8. Deer Lakes will temporarily permit students who also AW Beattie Career Center to drive to that school for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.
