School Bus “Dry Run” Scheduled for Monday Aug.6
The Daviess County Public Schools Transportation Department is ready to roll into a new school year.
As part of the preparation for the first day of school for students (Wednesday, Aug. 8), drivers will participate in a “dry run” on Monday, Aug. 6.
DCPS Transportation Director Wayne Wright said there are several benefits involved with this process. The dry run gives drivers an opportunity to review their routes, and allows parents and students to confirm their morning pick-up times. Families are encouraged to watch their bus stops to note the arrival time of their school bus.
In the meantime, DCPS mechanics have been working throughout the summer to ensure that all buses are inspected, tuned up and in excellent working order. Drivers and monitors are participating in training classes to review safety policies and procedures as part of our ongoing commitment to providing safe and efficient transportation of students.
We remind everyone that the first day of school is Aug. 8. Drivers, please be on the lookout for children during the morning commute and as they are being dropped off in the afternoon.
