Bus Driver Prayer
Please Lord, watch me this day.
Please help me remember to watch all five mirrors, two dozen windows
Eight gauges, six warning lights, six dozen faces
Three lanes of traffic and to keep a third eye open for wobbling bicycles
And day dreaming pedestrians especially teen-agers wearing head sets
Who are in another world.
Please Lord help me hear all train whistles, truck and automobile horns
Police sirens and the two way radio.
Please also let me hear when one of my students calls for me
And just needs a listening ear
Please Lord give me a hand for the gear lever, the steering wheel, The route book, the radio microphone and the turn-signal lever while being able to hand out Kleenexes and other things the kids may need
And Lord please grant me the self-control to keep my hands away from little Johnny’s neck when he’s pinching and biting little Billy , while trying to keep everybody in their seat, and reminding them that sticking their head outside the window is not safe.
And one more thing dear Lord, please don’t let little Mary
be sick all over the bus
And finally Lord please watch over us all
so that we can do it again next year.
Amen. ~Author Unknown

As the Transportation Department continues to focus on safety, continuing education and awareness to keep our children safe.Please visit Operation Lifesaver's website oli.org as well as our State's Operation Lifesaver website which can be found at LAOperationLifesaver.org to learn more. For interactive training visit the School Bus Driver e-learning Program. This is an interactive online experience for public and private school bus drivers. The program brings attention to choices bus drivers often make around tracks and trains and is intended to help bus drivers make safer decisions around the tracks. It does not and is not intended to teach you to drive a bus."
