As we come to the end of another school year we are so thankful to have a dedicated staff of bus drivers, office workers, and mechanic. Everyone works together well and due to the shortage of bus drivers we often find our mechanic and supervisors climbing behind the wheel to help out. It is because of our dedicated employees that our transportation department does so well each year. Now we are about to conclude another school year and it is time to start planning for next year.
As we begin planning we need to reach out to the community and ask, "Would you be willing to drive school bus for Alma Public Schools?" Please don't give a hasty no as so many do. Driving bus is a challenge, it takes the right kind of person to do it successfully, and it isn't the greatest schedule in the world as routes are about 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon. BUT, it can be a great experience for someone who wouldn't mind transporting kids a couple of time per day. I was one of those who feared driving but now after having done it for 3 years I can honestly say it is not that bad and the interaction I am having with students on the bus has been more enjoyable than I would ever have figured. I really do like driving school bus.
So please consider our plea to come drive for Alma Public Schools. Come in a get an application and set down with us so we can share with you what it is like to be a school bus driver. We look forward to it.
