School Bus Safety Week

The third full week of October is observed as School Bus Safety Week in Manitoba. Manitoba Education and Training bases its annual theme on the National Association of Pupil Transportation (NAPT) poster contest theme. Typically, this theme is directed at a specific group (e.g. students; the motoring public). The week is an opportunity for students to receive school bus ridership training; for reminding parents and the motoring public to be particularly careful around school bus vehicles; and, for school divisions to examine their pupil transportation practices.  Although the school bus safety week theme changes annually, one message remains constant – be aware and be safe around the school bus.
