Students Will Need Masks on Buses this Year

Hancock Superintendent Steve Patchin has message for parents across the Copper Country.

The first day of school across the state will start Tuesday September 7th. It starts bright and early for many students everywhere. Hancock Superintendent Steve Patchin wants to let parents and kids know there will be some extra rules on buses this year because of rising cases in COVID. A CDC mandate for public transportation will require students to wear masks on school buses this year. Hancock schools have also added some interesting technology to their bus routes. And this new tech will help parents track where their child is on the way to or from school. Patchin would also like to remind parents that routes may change during the first couple of weeks of the school year. Parents and kids headed off to kindergarten will need to arrive together, and have been asked to get to bus stops a few minutes early.
