The first ride on the big yellow bus can be a very traumatic and scary event for any 5 or 6 year old, especially if it means leaving Mommy or Daddy for the first time! We would like to ease the anxiety of that event a little bit.
This program is strictly voluntary and does not preclude the annual safety training that our department performs at the schools themselves at the beginning of the year. What is different is that your child can now get a “sneak preview” of the experience of riding the school bus before that first big day! The entire program should last no longer than one hour. We sure hope that you and your little ones can join us! We look forward to meeting them!
This annual event will be held in August, parents will be notified by mail.
