|Practice run for school buses|
The Pendleton County Schools Transportation Department is ready to roll into a new school year. As part of the preparation for the first day of school, drivers will participate in conducting a practice afternoon bus route on the afternoon of Tuesday, August 6, 2013.
Executive Director of Student Services Joe Buerkley says, “There are several benefits involved with this process. It gives drivers an opportunity to review their routes, school administrators an opportunity to review their dismissal procedures, and allows parents and students to confirm their assigned bus.”
Families are encouraged to watch their bus stops to note the assigned bus for that route. Buses will depart from schools at the normal dismissal time.
Mechanics have been working throughout the summer to ensure that all buses are inspected, tuned up and in excellent working order. Drivers and monitors are participating in training classes to review safety policies to provide safe and efficient transportation of students.
The first day of school for Pendleton County students will be Wednesday, August 14. Everyone should be on the lookout for children during their morning and afternoon commute.
