Head Start Transportation
The goal of Head Start Transportation is to give Head Start children a safe and happy bus ride to and from their Head Start center. Busing is a privilidge for children and parents. We are able to provide limited busing services to Head Start centers within route areas.
Bus Safety Education
All Head Start children and parents receive safety training. Transportation staff go into each classroom and provide bus safety, danger zones and evacuation training. During this time, the children are provided seat belts to practice with. The classroom then goes out to the bus and goes through the bus rules and practices an evacuation.
The Bus Safety Booklet is distributed to all children and sent home requesting parents to go through the booklet with their child. Videotapes are available for parents to view regarding the bus safety rules. Bus Safety notices/flyers are sent home through out the year. Bus Safety information is also included in the Head Start Newsletter. Throughout the program year families recieve information on safety (i.e. fire, pedestrian, personal, water, etc.).
