First Rider

We partner with First Rider to introduce students to riding the school bus safely.

First Rider is an event that introduces young children and their parents to school bus safety. This event is important for those taking the school bus for the first time.

With a focus on Kindergarten and Grade 1 students as well as students who are new to taking the bus, this interactive event helps students feel more comfortable riding the bus on their first day of school and throughout the school year. Parents/guardians must accompany their child throughout this event.
