Did you know that a school bus is the safest form of student transportation?
Last school year GRCS buses safely traveled 173,229 miles, which equates to almost 7 times around the earth!
Our Grand Rapids Christian Schools bus drivers conducted several Bus Safety Classes in October and November at the Evergreen, Iroquois and Rockford campuses. Some of the things students learned about include the danger zone around the bus, how to ride safely, and how to cross safely in front of the bus at a bus stop. Students also practiced school bus evacuations.
Please take some time to thank your bus driver!
And remember that the driver's main attention needs to be on the road, a reminder to your student of bus etiquette is always appreciated.
This year’s theme for National School Bus Safety is My School Bus, the Safest Form of Student Transportation.
