 Happy School Bus Driver Appreciation Week!

February is recognized as "Love the Bus" month, with February 8-12 being "School Bus Driver Appreciation Week". More than ever before DCS school bus drivers have stepped up and answered the call in so many ways during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

According to N.C. Public Schools, "School bus drivers have delivered technology, materials, internet access, and provided for student's most basic needs by delivering nutritious meals to families across the state. Without a doubt school bus drivers and other transportation staff have had more new things to handle this year than any previous: New tasks, processes, procedures, new rules, cleaning and sanitizing, worries about their own health and safety as well as the health and safety of the students they transport."

Thank you Duplin County Schools Transportation Department and all of the wonderful School Bus Drivers that go above and beyond regardless of the call. You are truly appreciated and are a vital part to the success of our students.
