Today’s highly interesting read (08/18/21): HAVE YOU THANKED A SCHOOL BUS DRIVER LATELY?

Bussing FAQs - Franklin Public Schools


Back in February WI dedicated a week to school bus drivers.

“In Wisconsin, there are over 15,000 school buses that safely transport more than 600,000 students to and from school each school day and travel nearly 70 million miles a year.”

Our daughter has been blessed.

Here she is back on September 1, 2020. That first day for Franklin Forest Park Middle School.

Have a great day back to school Kyla!

The woman driver who picked up Kyla every morning last school year, Sherry, has been very kind to our daughter, to the point she’s coming to Milwaukee Irish Fest this weekend to see Kyla perform with the Glencastle Irish Dancers.

Today’s read is from humorist Danny Tyree. Here’s an excerpt:

According to CNN, pandemic fears and enhanced unemployment benefits have left the nation facing a serious shortage of qualified school bus drivers. I hope the shortage will make society stop taking bus drivers for granted. (I know that I’m right behind the drivers. Especially when I’m in a hurry to get somewhere and it seems like every other house has the whole von Trapp Family Singers crew traipsing out to the bus. “Climb every mountain…miss every appointment…” But I digress.)

UPDATE: Kyla’s driver came on Sunday!
