Wednesday, Feb. 21 was Minnesota School Bus Driver Appreciation Day. School bus drivers play a vital role in the daily lives of countless students, ensuring their safe transportation to and from school. School transportation staff create a safe and comfortable environment for students, offering reassurance to parents and educators alike. We would like to thank all our transportation staff and want to highlight 4 staff members for their outstanding dedication.
