It Takes Someone Very Special To Drive a Bus

bus drivers
The credit for a child’s knowledge often goes to the teacher at school. But we often forget the first and last person many children see each and every school day. Our bus drivers safely transport more than 4,500 children to and from D7 schools every day. As a result of their dedication to ensuring that students are transported safely, our drivers have made the yellow bus the safest transportation system in the country.
Our professional school bus drivers "live the bus driver life" as the first and final link in the daily chain of events for nearly every student. They are true partners in education and clearly espouse our mission, to inspire and equip.
Anyone can drive a car – it takes someone really special to drive a bus! We invite you to join us in celebrating our transportation office during Bus Driver Appreciation Week!
