February is Love the Bus Month

This coming February, thousands of school children will make Valentine’s cards for someone extra special in their lives this year—their school bus drivers. To thank the men and women who take more than 26 million children safely to schools each day, the American School Bus Council (ASBC) is encouraging students, parents and teachers to “love the bus” in February and recognize their school bus drivers.

The Love the Bus program is celebrated onValentine’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 children to and from school each day on 480,000 buses, the largest and safest transportation system in the country.

    We love the bus at Glendale Elementary School District No. 40 in Glendale, Arizona. Last year students ate a healthy breakfast, boarded the bus filling out a sheet with questions about air pollution. Of course everything was decorated in cut out hearts, including the answers. Then experience an emergency evacuation by sliding out the back of the school bus. Students and drivers got to enjoy "Howler" the mascot from the The Arizona Coyotes National Hockey Team. The Phoenix Suns basketball team gave students a Suns folder. The students got to make valentines to show appreciation for bus drivers.
