Have a good school bus story to share?

Posted: Updated:

Parents, students and teachers are celebrating the men and women from the Henderson County Schools Transportation Department who take more than 4,000+ students safely to and from schools in Henderson, KY each day as part of the sixth annual National Love the Bus program.

The Love the Bus program, founded in 2007 and coordinated by the American School Bus Council (ASBC), is celebrated throughout February in school districts across the country as a way to raise awareness and appreciation for the hundreds of thousands of school bus drivers who safely transport more than 26 million children to and from school each day. It is also an opportunity for parents and children to learn more about the safety and environmental benefits of school bus transportation.

To help celebrate Love the Bus, parents, teachers and children are encouraged to visit the program's website, www.LoveTheBus.com, to share stories about their favorite bus drivers, and make interactive valentines to email or print and give to their bus drivers during the week of February 11th-15th.

Educators also may log on to www.LoveTheBus.com to download an educator's toolkit which provides details on incorporating Love The Bus into their lesson plans and offers best practices for communicating about pupil transportation.
