It’s been a long, cold winter. The bus barn has been a big help with the snow and cold. With April under way, including spring sports and field trips, it will be a busy two months. We look forward to serving the community’s needs. Please remind your children of the bus rules. Spring brings a lot of excitement and enthusiasm, but the bus is not a playground. Your children’s safety on and around the bus is of utmost importance.
School bus facts: • Approximately 480,000 yellow school buses carry 25 million children to and from school every weekday. • Only half of America’s students take the school bus to school; the others use more dangerous forms of transportation. • In the United States we lose more than 800 children every year because they are not in school buses. Most of the fatalities (55 percent) occur in cars driven by teenagers.
