"My Driver, My Hero" - School Bus Safety Week

"My Driver, My Hero" - School Bus Safety Week

School Bus Safety Week - October 19-24, 2020

It’s School Bus Safety Week and this year’s theme is “My Driver, My Hero” and Peace River School Division (PRSD) is encouraging students, families, staff and community members to express their appreciation to local School Bus Driver(s) for their important contributions.

As a part of School Bus Safety Week, the Alberta Student Transportation Advisory Council (ASTAC) invites students from kindergarten to grade six throughout the province to participate in the School Bus Safety Week poster contest. Students are encouraged to create posters that visually outline the theme “My Driver, My Hero."

Each year, the Peace River School Division (PRSD) Transportation Department staff travels 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 transports approximately 2900 students with a total service area of 10,813 square kilometers each day.
