This week is National School Bus Safety Week.
I have had the opportunity to ride every one of our bus routes during my time here as superintendent, and I have been impressed with the competence and dedication of our bus drivers. Our bus drivers recognize that they are the first and last Lexington ISD employee our students see, and they work hard to make our children feel safe. They drive our children through good and bad weather and on poorly lit roads that are sometimes treacherous. Particularly during storms and flooding, driving a bus full of children can be a formidable task, but our bus drivers get the job done. Please let our bus drivers know how much you appreciate all they do to make sure our students arrive to and from school safely each day.
