The Valley Stream Union Free School District Thirteen’s Willow Road Elementary School students recently participated in an interactive session of school bus safety drills. Students, in grades kindergarten through sixth, practiced important safety maneuvers and emergency evacuation procedures. The annual event takes place on school grounds and provides students with an opportunity to learn how to properly vacate a school bus in case of an emergency.
The District continues to prioritize student safety—instituting drills, assemblies and safety procedure plans throughout the school year to provide the utmost safety during school hours. Thanks to transportation personnel, teachers and aides, this drill was once again informative and valuable.
