Back-to-school can bring stress and anxiety for parents and kids. This year adds a whole new layer of stress that we’ve never felt anything like.

Pinellas, Pasco, and Polk open the doors to students this week. Hillsborough County will do online learning for week one. In-person learning will begin the following week.

It will be a lot for students to get used to bringing their masks and temperature checks at the door for some schools.

You may have seen Hillsborough County bus drivers on the roads last week practicing their bus routes. The school buses will be cleaned multiple times each day. And masks are required for students when they are on the school bus.

Jim Beekman is the General Manager of Transportation for Hillsborough County Public Schools. He said, “At the conclusion of their morning run, when they park their buses, we have a mister that they will be going in between all the seats and everything else. So that will be done twice a day.”
