School Bus Safety Week – “School Bus – Bully Free Zone”

School Bus Safety Week – “School Bus – Bully Free Zone”

School Bus Safety Week - October 21-27, 2018

October 19, 2018 - It’s School Bus Safety Week and this year’s theme is “School Bus – Bully Free Zone.” We all have a role to play in creating bully free environments and Peace River School Division (PRSD) reminds students to show respect, acceptance and kindness for self and others on the school bus. The school bus is an extension of the classroom and the same rules apply.  

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

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 3000 students 11,589 kms, with a total service area of 12,378 square kilometers each day.
