Bus Driver Information
A message for our Bus Drivers
Each and every School Year, dealing with a school bus is one of the most intensive and demanding jobs we do. It takes a special person to commit to being a Bus Driver. We are tasked with transporting our societies most valuable resource, our children. Not only are we just a driver, we are a safety monitor, a form of structure for these kids, and someone who listens and helps when there is a problem. Every driver does so much while performing the duties of this job. What you do helps to ensure the bright future of our kids. For that, we wanted to take this time and space to give a special Thanks, to you our Drivers!
