Parents are being reassured that there will not be a bus driver shortage when students return to school for the 2020-2021 school year.
Joe Santa Maria told Algoma District School Board trustees that the Huron Superior Transportation Services Consortium works with seven busing companies. He adds there have been no concerns about a driver shortage in September.
As far as concerns regarding COVID-19, students will be seated on buses starting at the back to prevent the kids from passing each other as they board.
Santa Maria also says bus drivers will be performing a deep clean before and after kids get on and off the bus.
