As students head back to in-person classes in Owasso, the district is working on a plan to prevent the spread of COVID-19, while students take the bus to school.

Administrators say they've spent a long time putting together this plan for when students board the bus.

The district said the kids will spread out on the buses, masks will be required and windows will stay down to circulate fresh air.

Transportation director Billy Oliver said they'll also have a seating chart for each route to allow for contact tracing if needed.

"We'll go back to that seating chart and we'll look at it and see if they're six feet apart, if they've been with him for more than 15 minutes and that'll help us determine if we need to do a protocol and quarantine,” said Oliver.

According to Oliver, drivers will spray the bus between each route and do a thorough cleaning at the end of each day.
