COVID-19 School Services

COVID-19 School Services Update for Week Beginning Monday 31st March to Friday 3rd April 2020 

BBL have been advised by the QLD Department of Transport to continue operation of school transport services as normal for week beginning Monday 31st to Friday 3rd April 2020

While the numbers of students accessing services may reduce significantly, it remains vital for the QLD Department of Education to continue to provide access to schooling for all. 

As we continue in these unprecedented times, we would like to assure our parents and carers of our continued diligence in your child’s health and safety and our team’s health and safety with regard to COVID-19.

Vehicles will continue to be sanitised at a much higher frequency than ever before.  This includes using an antibacterial spray on all high use areas between school runs.

Ongoing, it is expected that students adhere to advice received from the Australian Government regarding social distancing were possible on public transport, which includes school bus services. The advice for students includes:

  • If possible, sitting 1.5 metres apart to comply with social distancing;
  • covering their cough or sneeze;
  • not touching other passengers on the bus; and
  • for parents, we ask that you do not send your child on the bus if they are unwell.

We understand that social distancing is going to be difficult in some instances, however, as much as possible, drivers will be encouraging these guidelines on school runs and we ask that you speak to your child to ensure they understand what is expected of them.  The Code of Conduct for School Students Travelling on Buses states that students must follow the driver’s directions at all times. 

We would like to sincerely thank parents and carers for your ongoing support for what is a challenging time in all of our lives.
