MCSD Promotes National School Bus Safety Week with Buster, the Mini-School Bus

The Martin County School District (MCSD) is pleased to help promote National School Bus Safety Week on Oct. 19 -23, 2015. To kickoff National School Bus Safety Week, the MCSD Transportation department will be participating in school bus safety education at elementary schools in the district using “Buster,” the mini-school bus.  Buster is a fully-animated remote controlled school bus robot used for teaching the important lessons of school bus safety.

“We are thrilled to have Buster on site to help educate our students about safety on the school bus.  The Transportation department will be demonstrating the importance of school bus safety using Buster, who can move, speak, and listen via remote control.  Buster is an interactive and motivating “assistant” to help teach our younger children the importance of school bus safety.  Buster’s first stop will be at Jensen Beach Elementary this Friday,” says Laurie J. Gaylord, Superintendent.

National School Bus Safety Week is a great opportunity to remind motorists to slow down in a school zone and always exercise caution when buses are stopped, loading or unloading children.  This year’s theme — “Be Smart, Be Seen” — aims to heighten awareness of local stop arm laws and urges drivers to be extra cautious when approaching a stopped school bus.
