National School Bus Safety Week
Held during the third full week of October each year, National School Bus Safety Week is an active and evolving public education program and an excellent way for parents, students, teachers, motorists, school bus operators, school administrators, and other interested parties - to join forces and address the importance of school bus safety. Designed to promote school bus safety, school districts throughout the country observe School Bus Safety Week.
2017 National School Bus Safety Week: October 16-20, 2017 and the theme is "# STOP ON RED!" The theme of National School Bus Safety Week is derived from the Poster Contest the year before. The 2016 winning poster, depicted to the left, was drawn by Branden Pagurayan, Grade 8 at Kapolei Middle School, Kapolei, HI.
