Introducing our Bus Drivers!

I created a special video to help you learn each of our bus driver’s names.  They are incredible people who transport our students (your children) to and from school each day.  So often they take the time to match students with missing items, bandage boo boo’s, settle disputes over seat selections, and calm down worried children.

I can’t say enough about all that they do for us and the way in which they get our children safely to and from school each and every day.  This video also includes photos of the PK/K bus safety training that Gloria Dekkinga and Mary Wind ran for us this past week.  What a great team they make–and what great safety lessons they provided for our youngest and most precious cargo!

Hudsonville Bus Drivers Rock!

On Monday, June 15, the  Michigan Association for Pupil Transportation state school bus driving championship was held and it was our Art Birdsley that claimed our district’s first title since the last of back-to-back wins in 2004.

Hudsonville drivers also finished fourth and 12th in the 37-driver field representing the finest of Michigan’s school bus industry, which spends $770 million transporting more than 1 million children about 187 million miles each year on 12,665 buses. The two districts have won five of the last seven state titles, with four runners-up in that span.  To read more, click  BUS
