Just Hop On the Bus, Scotland!

Scotland Elementary kindergarteners came to the school on Wednesday to learn about bus safety. They joined SES Principal Jill Katkocin and Elementary Supervisor Sarah Weirsman for a bus short trip. First Student bus drivers showed students how to cross the street safely. Parents learned about protocols from Transportation Manager Rick Lupinacci. We have rescheduled the bus orientation, which happened at all the elementary schools, from Monday due to Storm Henri.
