 DCS Recognizes the Importance of School Bus Safety

National School Bus Safety Week, recognized October 21-25 is set aside to promote the importance of school bus safety.

According to the National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT), school bus transportation plays a critical role in the education of our nation's students and is the direct link between a neighborhood and the classroom. More than 25 million children ride the yellow bus every school day, and National School Bus Safety Week serves as a reminder for students, parents, teachers, and the community to keep school bus safety at the forefront.

Mr. Bobby Mobley, Director of Transportation for Duplin County Schools shared, “Our team always strives to promote the highest safety possible while transporting our students daily and I appreciate the dedicated work of everyone in the entire department.”

“Duplin County Schools recognizes and understands the importance of school bus safety. The Transportation Department works hard to ensure that school bus safety is a top priority every day and we are thankful for their dedication and commitment to student safety. It is essential that everyone across the district continue to promote school bus safety to ensure that students are safely transported to and from school every day,” said Dr. Austin Obasohan, Superintendent for Duplin County Schools.
