National School Bus Safety Week

For many students, the bus driver is the first school employee they see in the morning and the last one they see in the afternoon. We can probably all think of those little kindnesses that our bus driver showed us when were small that made the day go better. Those days are not gone, and continue to happen every day.

Aside from being a friendly face, our drivers are entrusted with the incredibly important task of transporting scores of students safely, and do so despite weather conditions which are sometimes not ideal, other motorists whose driving skills are less than optimum, or a student who fails to realize how his or her conduct on the bus jeopardizes the safety of everyone on board.

Every year on the third full week in October, the nation spotlights this important piece of the educational puzzle. The theme of this year's National School Bus Safety Week. The theme for this year is, "Stop on Red, Kids Ahead" and emphasizes the idea that bus safety includes educating the public at large on its responsibility to respect school bus as it runs its route.

The artwork displayed here is one of the national poster contest winners. To view the other winning pieces of artwork, click here.
