Fall is a busy time for schools. It also coincides with daylight saving time, meaning it’s darker in the morning when students are waiting at bus stops…and dark roads make driving conditions more hazardous. That’s one reason why it is so important to make time in your busy schedules to acknowledge National School Bus Safety Week Oct. 18-22.

Raising awareness can save lives. That’s a fact. The purpose of National School Bus Safety Week is to educate the public and make sure parents, teachers and the community keep school bus safety in the forefront, not just in October but throughout the year.

School bus transportation is the direct link between neighborhoods and classrooms. That’s why I encourage you to visit the National Association for Pupil Transportation website for tips on promoting school bus safety in your schools and communities.

Safety awareness starts at home when parents are preparing their children for the school day. By finding creative ways to get tips and reminders into their hands, all of us can play a role in making sure students get to school and return home safely, every day.
