Department of Transport: Back to School
When travelling on a school bus your child should:
- Practise good hygiene and physical distancing from others when they can
- Sit next to their siblings
- Stay home if they are unwell
- Practice good hygiene including using hand sanitiser and coughing into their elbow
Extra cleaning is happening on all school buses, including nightly sanitation.
The Department of Transport is working closely with our transport operators and the Department of Education to ensure the transition back to school and face-to-face learning is as simple as possible.

Information for Bus Travellers
From the beginning of the 2020 school year the Skene Street Bus Interchange will be the main interchange for all school buses in the Shepparton area. As a result, some of the school bus routes have changed to accommodate students travelling to various campuses in the Shepparton area.
Please note, buses may not be arriving or leaving from the same bus bays they were allocated to previously.
Staff from Dysons, Jacobsons and the Area Bus Coordinator will be present at the Skene Street Bus Interchange both before and after school for the first week of Term 1 to address any issues that arise and to offer their assistance if required.
Notre Dame Staff are always present at Skene St before and after school to both assist and supervise students.
