Meet the Bus provides students who are new to the division, or new to riding the bus, with the opportunity to meet a bus driver, take a tour of a school bus, learn about school bus rules, and even take a short bus ride, prior to school starting in September.
The goal is to increase students' confidence and reduce anxiety about taking the bus to and from school.
Sessions are offered at NLPS elementary schools in Bonnyville, Cold Lake and Lac La Biche in August. Exact dates and locations are announced in early August and shared with families via School Messenger. They are also shared on social media and school websites.
