The business community has an important role to play as our students return to school in a few weeks. The school districts, while working within the guidelines of Phase Two and Phase Three, will have challenges with bus transportation, as these phases put restrictions on how many students can be on the buses. As employers, this means that you may want to consider a revision to your policies and hours for employees to support them, and our schools, and allow many of them flexible hours to drop off and pick up their children from school during this time.

This pandemic has certainly affected many aspects of our lives but we must all do our part to return to as much normalcy as possible – school and work – while also working to stop the spread.
