• SEPT 16 | We would like to take a moment to thank the employers in our community who have extended flexibility to their employees as they work to get their children to school on time.

    We extend a further thanks to parents, grandparents, and neighbors who are working together to create carpools and generate ride share opportunities in order to find ways to help each other get children to school. It is these kinds of partnerships that display the quality of who we are as a community.
    Driver shortages continue to impact pupil transportation services for the district. FNSB School District and Durham Transportation are suspending routes through October 8th.
     
    Routes that will be affected can be found on the Suspension of Bus Routespage.
     
    Thank you, again, to our families, staff and especially bus drivers for their continued support while we work together to keep our students in-person this school year

  • The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District will suspend bus service, on a rotating basis, beginning Monday, August 30, 2021. For information on affected routes and schools, please check our Suspension of Bus Routes page.

  • CDC Mask Mandate

    The Centers for Disease Control issued an order on 29 January 2021, requiring masks on all public transportation conveyances, including school buses. The CDC’s order can be found here. This order is different from CDC guidelines, in that, it is authorized by, and enforceable under the United States Code, and the Code of Federal Regulations. As noted in the CDC Order: “While this Order may be enforced and CDC reserves the right to enforce through criminal penalties, CDC does not intend to rely primarily on these criminal penalties but instead strongly encourages and anticipates widespread voluntary compliance as well as support from other federal agencies in implementing additional civil measures enforcing the provisions of this Order, to the extent permitted by law and consistent with President Biden’s Executive Order of January 21, 2021 (Promoting COVID-19 Safety in Domestic and International Travel).”

    In accordance with CDC guidance (found here): “No disciplinary action should be taken against a student who does not have a mask as described in the U.S. Department of Education COVID-19 Handbook, Volume 1.” Masks will be available on school buses for students without one.

    For questions or concerns regarding this CDC order, or CDC guidance, please contact the CDC at 1-800-232-4636.
