CINCINNATI (WXIX) – The tri-state’s largest school district, Cincinnati Public Schools, and its 36,000 students return to class Thursday.

Remember to bring your umbrella and plan for rain at the bus stop.

As students in Cincinnati are returning to face-to-face learning, masks are required prior to K through Grade 12. The staff also has to mask themselves.

According to the district, 70% of CPS employees are currently vaccinated.

When a student has contact with someone with COVID-19, the student’s family will be notified. The student can continue to go to school if they have no symptoms.

The Cincinnati Police Department has made security improvements in school zones.

More than a dozen students at the Cincinnati Public School were hit by vehicles in 2018, mostly on the west side of the city, including 15-year-old Gabriella Rodriguez, who died.

With CPS back in class on Thursday, it means there will be an influx of kids on the way! Please be particularly careful near zebra crossings and in school zones and put your phone away! @RoadmapCincy & our Community Relations Unit teamed up this summer to make some improvements in the school zone. pic.twitter.com/X2i5dBxEEx

This year, the pupils will take regular metro buses. They can no longer use Metro’s “Xtra” routes specially set up for them.

The Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority (SORTA) announced earlier this month that the routes are now being suspended due to a bus driver shortage. They say they will increase safety on all routes.

Students receive regular subway bus passes at their school. Until then, you can take the bus for free on Thursdays and Fridays.

You can check the best route for your student to get to school by subway Trip planner Website that Local transport app or on Google Maps. Simply enter your home address and preferred time.
