School Bus Safety Week - "Know Your Zone"
It’s School Bus Safety Week and this year’s theme is “Know Your Zone.”
Students from kindergarten to grade six throughout the province are encouraged to participate in the Alberta Student Transportation Advisory Council’s (ASTAC) School Bus Safety Week poster contest. Students are encouraged to create posters that visually outline the theme “Know the Zone” by showing the safe and unsafe areas around the school bus. Learn more about the poster contest HERE.
Each year, Peace River School Division (PRSD) Transportation Department staff travel to schools to educate our students, drivers and staff on school bus safety. Students participate in various presentations, watch bus safety videos, take part in mock evacuations and practice safe school bus loading and off-loading.
PRSD thanks our professional school bus drivers, staff, students, parents, community organizations and community members for your commitment to ensure student safety.
PRSD's 78 school bus driver's transport approximately 3000 students 11,589 kms, with a total service area of 12,378 square kilometers each day. Learn more about joining our team of professional school bus drivers HERE.
