Throughout bus safety week, Hamilton Community Schools bus drivers were all over our district teaching our youngest students about the importance of bus safety and positive behavior. On Wednesday, October 25, Miss Sheila (Bus 38) and Miss Diane (Bus 17) visited Bentheim Elementary to speak with Mrs. Perdue's young fivers!

The students watched a safety presentation video with 'Willie the Whistle' before learning how to cross the road, get on the bus, how to behave on the bus, and how to safely exit the bus.

"We need to start bus safety at a young age," said Miss Sheila Brown, "The students learned how to get on and off of the bus, crossing in front of the bus, the dangers of the actual bus and getting away from the wheels. We also made sure they're watching their driver and behaving during the ride," Brown added.

This visit comes after several drivers went to Hamilton, Blue Star, and Bentheim Elementary schools last week during the official bus safety week to present to kindergarten classes.

Thank you, HCS Transportation for taking the time to teach our young Hawkeyes!
