Bus drivers prep for new school year


Indian Lake School Transportation Director Pat Smith talks with bus drivers during training on Aug. 16. The school’s bus drivers go through the training before each school year. They practiced scenarios on the bus with Smith and heard from Washington Township Officer Adam Niederkohr concerning emergency response techniques. He urged them to mentally prepare for the job of transporting dozens of students each day by thinking of themselves as “sheepdogs” or protectors of their flock. The entire Indian Lake staff planned to participate in ALICE training prior to the start of school. With school buses back on the road, all drivers are asked to take care and to be patient so students can travel safely to and from school, sporting events and other activities.
