Celebrating school bus drivers

March 1, 2018

Governor Mark Day­ton has proclaimed Feb. 28 as School Bus Driver Appreciation Day in Min­nesota. School districts across Minnesota will cel­ebrate the second annual School Bus Driver Appre­ciation Day by passing out student-made thank you cards and providing food and beverages to bus drivers.
The Minnesota School Bus Operators Associa­tion (MSBOA) and Minne­sota Association of Pupil Transportation (MAPT) teamed up to create School Bus Driver Appre­ciation Day in Minnesota as a way to encourage school leaders, parents, and students to celebrate the often overlooked pro­fession.
Jordan Bennett of Tyler Bus Service says the drivers deserve a big tip of the cap for all they do.
