Welcome Back Bus Drivers

I appreciated the opportunity to speak to our bus drivers this morning.  These folks do a critically important job.  They are the first person from the district that students see in the morning and the last one they see at the end of the day.  They are charged with the safe transport of students in all kinds of conditions and on all kinds of roads, including one-lane dirt roads in our rural areas.  Last year, our drivers drove the equivalent miles of a round-trip plus a one-way trip to the moon, and they drove these many thousands of miles with no serious accidents.  These are truly awesome people!
