Love the Bus Day is a cherished tradition in APS where students and school staff show their appreciation for all APS transportation staff members. The celebration highlights the importance of our bus drivers, mechanics, paraprofessionals and other department support staff. They share the responsibility of safely transporting more than 11,000 eligible APS students to and from school each day.
Feb. 12 marked the ninth annual Love the Bus celebration and the district started the day off by hosting a breakfast at the transportation building. Throughout the day, many schools hosted their own celebrations with cards and small gifts given to drivers and para educators from students during school drop off and pick up times.
We are grateful to everyone who participated in the Love the Bus celebration and would like to offer a heartfelt thank you to our transportation staff for all that they do for APS and our students.
