    Oct. 21 is School Bus Driver Apreciation Day

    Bus Driver Logo

    School bus drivers play an important role in the safety of Kansas’ students. To honor them, Gov. Laura Kelly has proclaimed Wednesday, Oct. 21 as School Bus Drivers’ Appreciation Day.

    “These men and women dedicate their time and talent to make sure 225,578 students are transported safely to and from school and activities every school day,” said Keith Dreiling, director of the Kansas State Department of Education’s Bus Safety Unit. “Please take the time to help me honor them. They are extremely valuable assets and are unsung heroes in communities across the state.”

    School Bus Drivers’ Appreciation Day falls during National School Bus Safety Week, which has been set aside to remind people about school bus safety. National School Bus Safety Week is Oct. 19-23, 2020.

    The theme for this year’s campaign is “Red Lights Mean STOP!”

    Kansas law requires all motorists to stop when approaching or overtaking a stopped school bus displaying its flashing red lights and stop arm. Motorists are to remain stopped until the bus is no longer displaying its flashing red lights and stop arm. Violation of the law is punishable by a fine and court costs in excess of $420.

    Please join the South Haven staff in celebrating our dedicated bus drivers who deliver our students to and from school each day!
