They will be in
Families can take their first bus rides together to get the kids ready for September. Each student will receive a certificate and a small gift for attending.
The event is free and no registration is required. Parents are encouraged to consider a cash donation or new school supplies on behalf of "Supplies for Students" which coordinates the distribution of much-needed school supplies through school principals.
Chief Administrative Officer Maureen Cosyn Heath encourages everyone to take advantage of this free service.
"School Bus Safety Day is a great way for parents and their little ones to overcome some of those start-of-school jitters. Students will learn how to be safe riders and what kind of behaviours are necessary on the bus to help keep them safe. We are very pleased to offer this free event for the 6th year in a row. School bus safety impacts the whole community so this is a wonderful way to bring it front and centre before school begins in September. We hope for a great turn out, good weather and lots of support for Supplies for Students."
