The chairs of Halton’s two school boards offered thanks to school bus operators for their important work of safely transporting students in a letter distributed to each driver.

Kelly Amos, Chair of the Halton District School Board and Diane Rabenda, Chair of the Halton Catholic School Board co-signed the letter thanking the drivers on behalf of the students, parents, and staff.

“We wish to extend to you our deepest gratitude for the vital role that you play and the fine work that you do in your job as a school bus operator for students in Halton,” the letter explained.

Each school year, approximately 33,000 students who attend 150 public and Catholic schools across Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton, and Oakville rely on school bus transportation to and from school.

The letter to the bus drivers states:
“Throughout each school year you travel thousands of kilometres, often in adverse weather conditions and through unpredictable traffic, to deliver our students safely to our schools. Your dedication, hard work, and vigilance are instrumental to the safe and efficient home to school transportation of those who are most precious to us – the students entrusted to our care. Thank you for so generously sharing the spirit of your profession in a manner that touches the lives of so many.”
