Kindergarten students, bus drivers get chance to meet

Patrick Fisher, Staff Writer

Kindergarten students in New Prague Area Schools will have the chance to meet with their bus drivers and become familiar with the school bus as the new school year begins.

Transportation Director Craig Most said students at Raven Stream Elementary School in New Prague were scheduled to meet their bus drivers during the school's open house Wednesday, Aug. 27. The seven bus drivers that serve the school were lined up with their buses, with parents and students able to visit and meet with the drivers during a two-hour period.

The district's other elementary schools, Falcon Ridge in New Prague and Eagle View in Elko New Market, will have an opportunity for kindergarten students and parents to meet the bus drivers on Wednesday, Sept. 3, when kindergartners come for their first day of class. After teachers take attendance, the students will go out to the buses to visit with the drivers.

The meetings between the students and the drivers will help drivers become familiar with the students and help kindergartners learn about buses and bus procedures.

Most said the hope is that the meetings will prevent incidents like one that happened last year, when a kindergarten student got on the wrong bus. The student was located and brought home, but Most said the parents had some anxious moments.

We'll gather information and see which method we think is better
