Superintendent Drives School Bus  During National School Bus Safety WeekOn Thursday, October 19, Longwood Superintendent of Schools Dr. Michael R. Lonergan took a school bus for a test drive in honor of National School Bus Safety Week.

After receiving a brief training session from Suffolk Transportation Service Bus Driver Trainer John Simms, Dr. Lonergan drove the bus around the high school parking lot to learn the importance of safety both inside and outside of a school bus.

“With schools open, motorists must be aware of their surroundings while on the road,” said Dr. Lonergan. “National School Bus Safety Week is a great opportunity to remind everyone to stop, watch and drive slowly when they are around schools and buses.  This experience gave me a new respect for our dedicated bus drivers and how they ensu¬re the safety of our students.”

School buses transport more than 9,600 Longwood students twice a day over fifty-three square miles and deliver our students to our seven schools, private schools, BOCES, field trips and athletic events.  

Held as an annual public education program during the third full week of October, National School Bus Safety Week is an excellent way for parents, students, teachers, motorists, school bus operators, school administrators, and other interested parties - to join forces and address the importance of school bus safety.
