In accordance with the Governor's Executive Order and subsequent guidance provided by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and the NC Department of Public Instruction, New Hanover County Schools has implemented changes and new requirements for bus transportation. They include:
  • Families are required to have on file a Parent/Guardian Attestation form prior to utilizing bus transportation. The Parent/Guardian Attestation form can be found at Completed forms may be emailed to or turned in at your school. Schools are able to print forms for parents who are not able to.
  • Per the attestation form, temperature checks and symptom screening shall be done at home prior to the student leaving for the bus stop.
  • A face mask is required for all students riding the bus. There are no exemptions while riding the school bus.
  • Seating on the bus will be limited to one student per seat. Exceptions will be made for members of the same family.
  • Due to the reduced capacity of the buses, routes and stops have changed. Individual stops are combined into community stops.
Please verify your students' route and stop time before the start of school on Monday, October 12, 2020. NHCS appreciates the community’s cooperation and understanding. 
The Edulog Parent Portal bus tracking phone application is available for all NHCS bus riders.  Once downloaded and registered, users can track the location of the bus and view updated bus stop information.  Set up notification alerts for notification that the bus is approaching the bus stop.  Through the app, parents will only see bus stop information on the days their student is scheduled to be at the school.
