EASD to host School Bus Orientation Days in August

July 18, 2019- With the start of school quickly approaching, the Elizabethtown Area School District is excited to partner with Durham School Services (EASD’s transportation provider) for the annual School Bus Orientation Day. This special program is geared toward kindergarten students and those new to riding the school bus at the primary elementary school level (grades K-3).

School Bus Orientation Days have been scheduled at each elementary school the week of August 12-16. As part of the free, hour-long program, Durham School Services staff will be on site to talk the children on bus safety, danger zones, loading/unloading, and take them on a short bus ride. The District encourages families to take advantage of this opportunity that will help children and their parents feel more comfortable with riding the school bus.
