7th annual First Riders!
The 7th annual First Riders event took place on August 28, 2012 at Northlands Park. We couldn't have asked for better weather for our outdoor event, which brought out hundreds of first riders and their families to join us for a day of learning. Students learned about safe bus riding practices, the role parents play to and from the bus stop, and had an opportunity to take a practice ride on the bus. Check out the photos from the event.
10th annual Bus Driver Appreciation Day!
May 8, 2013 marks our annual Bus Driver Appreciation Day. This day is set aside every year to recognize the safe and caring efforts our school bus drivers provide by transporting approximately 9,300 children to and from district schools each day. We'd like to express a sincere thank you to all school bus drivers for the challenging work they do each day getting our students to school safely, on time and ready to learn.
