Kindergartners Ride School Bus for the First Time

Posted by User Not Found on 15 August, 2016

Incoming kindergartners and their parents practiced riding school buses during Transportation’s “Ride the Big Yellow Bus” event last week. This three day annual event helped prepare the District’s newest bus riders and their parents for the upcoming school year. Each school bus drove a modified route through neighborhoods, on the freeway, and through a school that was designed to demonstrate a typical bus ride to and from school. Before families began their bus ride, transportation specialists spoke with each bus of riders about bus etiquette, bus safety, and offered helpful tips to parents to ensure each student makes it home safely. After the bus ride, students received a school bus safety coloring book and practiced safely exiting the bus and crossing the street.
