Bus Driver Appreciation Day
October 21 - October 25
School bus drivers take students to and from school, and also take them to and from school-related events, such as field trips and sporting events. In the United States and Canada, it is estimated that school buses—and thus school bus drivers—give about 8 billion trips between homes and schools each year
Being a school bus driver does not only consist of driving in the morning and driving in the afternoon; there are tasks and responsibilities that go along with it. Drivers must follow and memorize their routes, must stay on schedule, and must know basic bus maintenance. They must also log their miles and keep a record of their passengers. When students board their bus, they must make sure that they do so safely.
