Dear: Perham-Dent Parents and Students,
As part of Independent School District 549’s COVID-19 Mitigation Strategy, students are not allowed to ride to or from school to home on buses other than the buses they are assigned to.
Students riding different buses becomes an issue with contract tracing when there is a positive COVID-19 case on a certain bus. If students are switching buses from their originally assigned bus, it increases the likelihood of a full bus quarantine due to the inability of contract tracing.
We understand that students may want to ride a different bus than their assigned bus if they are staying or visiting at a friend’s house, however, that is not allowed due to our COVID-19 mitigation plans.
