    Dear Preschool and Kindergarten Parents/Guardians: 

    Please be sure you are at your child's bus stop.  Phone calls will no longer be made to the child's home if a parent/guardian is not at the bus stop.  Buses will simply return students to their school and the parent/guardian will be notified to pick up their child at the school.  Thank you for helping us maintain consistent timing of our bus stops for all of our families!


    As with all other facets of the education process, cooperation and partnership with parents is vital. Please take a moment to review the bus safety rules with your child and make sure they arrive at their bus stop five (5) minutes prior to their pick-up time and that they wait in their designated place of safety.


    When your children board the bus each morning, you can be assured that they are traveling in the safest mode of transportation.  The State of Ohio School Bus Driver Training Program is nationally recognized for its proactive stance in establishing safety practices for pupil transportation.  In addition to extensive pre-service training, school bus drivers must go through a recertification process every six years, which includes BCI and FBI background checks. BMV abstract reports are also done quarterly on all drivers. And two times a year our school buses undergo safety inspections by the State Ohio Patrol. The safety record of our drivers is exemplary; we have enjoyed a reduction in insurance premiums for the past four years due to the small number of claims reported.


    So leave the driving to us because "Transporting Precious Cargo" is what we do best!
