As part of National Bus Safety Week in October, Orange schools’ bus drivers worked with their students in running bus safety drills for emergency evacuations.

Older student leaders were assigned to help the younger students as they exited both the front and back of the buses and directed them to safety. Earlier in the month, the Orange schools’ bus drivers competed at the Regional Bus Safety Road-E-O where the team of Teresa Jaszczak, Debbie Burns, Debbie Becker and Shannon Gross placed first. Ms. Burns, Ms. Becker and Ms. Gross all advanced to the State Road-E-O competition.
