Parents, students and teachers are celebrating the men and women from the Eagle County School District that take more than 4081 students safely to schools in Eagle County each day as part of the fifth annual National Love the Bus program this February 14th.
The Love the Bus program, founded in 2007 and coordinated by the American School Bus
Council (ASBC), is celebrated on Valentine’s Day and throughout February in school districts across the country as a way to raise awareness and appreciation for the hundreds of thousands of school bus drivers who safely transport more than 26 million school children to and from school each day. It is also an opportunity for parents and children to learn more about the safety and environmental benefits of school bus transportation.
To help celebrate Love the Bus, parents, teachers and children are encouraged to visit the program's Web site, www.LoveTheBus.com, to share stories about their favorite bus drivers, and make interactive valentines to email or print and give to their bus driver on Valentine’s Day, February 14. Educators also may log on to www.LoveTheBus.com to download an educator’s toolkit, which provides details on incorporating Love The Bus into their lesson plans and offers best practices for communicating about pupil transportation.
