On behalf of the Shenendehowa Central Schools, we want to recognize the outstanding work that is accomplished each day by the Shen transportation Department staff. They transport more than 12,000 students every day, that’s 2.3 million passengers per school year, and they do this in a safe and efficient manner. Our fleet logs more than 1.9 million miles per year. We provide transportation services to18 special education locations and we transport students to 48 private schools, in and outside of the district.
Our Shen transportation team is made up of varied and highly dedicated employees. Most of whom live in the Shen community. Each and every one of our employees is dedicated to ensuring the students are transported safely so they have a productive educational day. Our bus drivers operate 12-ton school buses under some very adverse driving conditions, while at the same time attempting to manage a bus load of highly energized school children. Our transportation employees do a magnificent job and we are very proud of them!
As we celebrate School Transportation Appreciation Week we encourage our students, school staff and our community members to share a “smile and a thank you” with our drivers, and bus attendants.
We also encourage all motorists to please slow down during the hours when children are picked up and dropped off, stop when you see a school bus with its flashing red lights on and help us to continue to deliver safe school bus transportation to all the children in our school district!
