Subject:School Bus Safety Week
October 16 - 20, 2017 is School Bus Safety Week, a special opportunity for bus companies, school boards/transportation consortia, media, parents, students, teachers, motorists, and many others to come together, reinforce, and highlight the importance and safety of student transportation across Ontario.

Image of school bus with "stop" arm extended and message: "#StopOnRed - When you see a stop arm extended, be patient and stop so our students can safely board and exit the bus."“#StopOnRed!” is this year’s theme.  It helps remind everyone of the importance for all motorists to be aware of their surroundings, particularly near stopped school buses with their red overhead lights flashing and "stop" arm extended.

Wednesday, October 18, 2017 is School Bus Driver Appreciation Day.  Without a doubt, professional school bus drivers are an extraordinary and talented group of people who embrace a tremendous responsibility to ensure kids remain safe and out of harm’s way each and every day.
