Safety First

Our Transportation Department is dedicated to safely transporting children to and from school. Our students' safety requires shared cooperation and responsible actions by the bus driver, students, and their parents. Our transportation staff is committed to providing safe buses and bus stops as well as well-trained drivers. We require our drivers to meet state and federal training regulations. Safety is always our number one consideration as we establish bus routes and provide student transportation.

At Transportation, there is always a reason to celebrate! The team enjoys coming together to celebrate holidays, employee achievement, or special events. Throughout the year, the department hosts fundraisers to raise money for our future events.
