Finn-Woodward Bus Monitors: Sign up for a shift

Do you have a Kindergartener scared about getting on the bus the first day? Does your 1st-3rd grader gets nervous the first week of school. Or maybe you’re the one nervous about putting your child on the bus.

Volunteering as Bus Monitor can help.

The first two days of school, volunteers monitor the Finn-Woodward bus route. The dates are Thursday, August 28 and Friday, August 29.

Monitors only need to commit to one trip. (Though you can take as many as are available.)

Even if your child is rearing to go, consider taking a shift.

Having monitors on the bus the first few days is important for the safety of our young students. Volunteers help children establish safe patterns for the school year.

Monitors ensure that children:

  • Settle in quickly and buckle up (with a lap belt and clasp that many are unfamiliar with)
  • Sit in the right area of the bus (3rd graders in back and Kindergartners close to the driver)
  • Get off the appropriate stops
