Bus Driver Appreciation Week

The week of February 11 has been designated as “Love the Bus” and School Bus Driver Appreciation Week. Please take some time to thank our drivers and transportation staff for everything they do to bring our students to and from school safely and securely.

Our drivers are the first DPS face many of our students see in the morning and the last they see in the afternoon. While they support a small community of students on their bus every day, they also keep a watchful eye on other drivers and potential hazards.  They play a challenging yet essential role in Durham Public Schools.

Please let them know that you appreciate what their training, professionalism and caring provide to our students. They make the “big yellow bus” a safe and welcoming part of the school day.
