Getting Here from There
The big yellow bus continues on as a symbol heralding the beginning and end of school. This symbolism takes on added meaning with the large geographic area covered by the Schuylerville Central School District.
Schuylerville has more than 25 buses that travel more than a half million miles per year—think of it as going to California and back every day! Approximately 1,700 Schuylerville students, 75 private and parochial school students and 35 special needs students ride our buses to 25 different schools each day.
With such a high level of activity, safety is the top priority. Schuylerville’s buses are thoroughly inspected every morning. Our bus drivers go through extensive training before obtaining licensing.
Parents have a role in bus safety, too. [READ MORE]
