Students who require school bustransportation must request it. Bus stop information is posted on the district’s Here Comes the Bus app. To access instructions on how to download the Here Comes The Bus app, click this bus link. Information is also provided in the parent portal of PowerSchool, North Carolina’s student information system. For those who have already requested transportation, bus stop information is being mailed to parents’ homes.
We now have the link to the online attestation form (click on form link) that families can complete for their students to ride the bus. Families must either complete the attestation online by midnight before the next school day, or be able to hand a hard copy of the form to the bus driver, although students will be allowed to board the buses without a form. If there are any questions or concerns, please call the Smith HS main office at (336) 294-7300.
As a reminder, children who have tested positive for COVID-19, children who have been exposed to someone who tested positive or children who are awaiting COVID-19 test results, should stay at home until cleared by their healthcare provider or public health. Parents should also inform their school principal or school nurse.
