Let’s Talk About Bus Safety

Getting students to school safely is a top priority at New Garden Elementary School. Therefore, last week, every class boarded a school bus with their teacher to review the bus rules. Principal Mrs. Elizabeth Weaver stressed the importance of the rules as a way to keep the students safe. All of the behaviors that are expected on the school bus were modeled for the students by their fellow students.

Now students know what a New Garden bus sounds and looks like. They sat in the seats as if the bus were moving. The teachers were allowed to sit in the driver’s seat to get a feel of what bus drivers endure during their daily trips. Teachers closed by reemphasizing how important it is to follow the bus rules and remain seated while the bus is en route.

Mrs. Weaver is expecting good reports from all of the bus drivers this school year.
