Students and driver on school bus 

The first winners of the district’s new Bus of the Month program have been announced at each of the five elementary schools (some tied for first place at several of the schools). The program, which began Feb. 1, is designed to strengthen school bus behavior at the elementary level. Each Bus of the Month is now outfitted with a sign announcing the honor. Look for them around town. Congratulations to all!

During the month of February, drivers registered bus behavior with a simple “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” that was recorded for each bus by school personnel. In March, drivers will add a more neutral “thumb sideways” that will provide a more accurate estimate of monthly bus behavior. At the end of each month, the bus(es) with the highest number of positive reports at each school will be awarded with the Bus of the Month placard.
