Officials urged parents to heed the following measures in preparing students to return to school Wednesday:

  • Dress children in layers by choosing warm fabrics
  • Cover ears, nose, and cheeks
  • Provide adequate nutrition prior to leaving for the bus stop, including water and/or a warm, non-caffeinated liquid
  • Instruct your child to keep body, fingers and toes moving while waiting for the bus to arrive
  • If possible, accompany your child to the bus stop or walk with your child to school.
