Dear Fleming Countians,
Each day, our bus drivers deliver the district’s most precious cargo – our students. Each bus driver dedicates their time and talent to ensuring students are safely transported to and from school and activities. Our bus drivers are the first staff members that greet our students each day, setting the stage for a great learning experience. In other words, each bus driver is a “Director of First Impressions” in the district.
As Kentucky, like all other states, face an ongoing shortage of bus drivers, I feel that it is important and necessary for the district and community to recognize the service of our bus drivers. This, undoubtedly, is one of the hardest and stressful jobs in the district. They drive in the most extreme weather, on narrow roads, before sunrise and after sunset. Yet they do it with quality and precision each time, helping each student to arrive to school and back home safely. We truly have some of the best bus drivers in Kentucky and the nation.
As we continue our journey to become a District of Distinction, the job and role of bus drivers is vision critical. It is important to keep in mind that the overwhelming majority of our students ride a bus to and from school each day. Therefore, the role of a bus driver cannot be understated. They are responsible for ensuring the comfort, safety, and welfare of all students they transport. They serve our students with unparalleled commitment.
On behalf of the Fleming County Board of Education and the faculty and staff, I want to thank our bus drivers for what they do for our students each day. They arrive to work with the dedication needed to ensure our students are ready to learn and succeed. If you see a bus driver out in the community, join me in showing them your appreciation for their service to our students.
If you are interested in becoming a bus driver, please contact Greg Dunaway, Director Maintenance and Transportation, at 606-845-5851.
Our Journey Continues…
