Chatham-Kent Lambton Administrative School Services (CLASS) is urging children and parents to say a special 'thank you' to the many dedicated bus drivers, who ensure students arrive safely at school every day.
CLASS is a consortium which provides bus transportation each day to more than 17,000 students of the St. Clair Catholic and Lambton Kent district school boards, across Sarnia-Lambton and Chatham-Kent.
National School Bus Safety Week is held every year throughout North America during the third week of October.
"This annual observance is a great opportunity for each of us to recognize the important work of our school bus drivers and operators," says Kent Orr, CLASS General Manager. "We ask that our students and parents join us in showing our appreciation to the women and men who keep our students safe on the ride to school and back home every day."
School Bus Driver Appreciation Day, which is also a nationally recognized observance, falls on Wednesday, October 18, 2017.
