First Ride and Kindergarten Orientation

First Ride

The purpose of this program is to let students have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the School Bus.

During this program you and your child will have the opportunity to ride the School Bus and learn first hand about the School Bus, the rules and how to ride the bus safely. This can be a fun adventure for little ones but it can also be a time of apprehension for them as well as parents.

It is the aim of this program to answer any and all questions that you may have about your child riding the bus and that the first day of school will be a happy experience for everyone.

Kindergarten First Rides will take place on August 24th, 2022 at Elizabeth Rummel School, and on August 25th, 2022 at Banff Elementary School.
