Rodeo Helps Bus Drivers Gear Up for New School Year

After a being off the job for three months, many bus drivers are getting back behind the wheel. Driving with as many as 50 kids onboard is no easy task, so they practiced to gear up for the upcoming school year.

Randolph County bus drivers participated in a local scale rodeo Thursday morning. They had previously attended a similar state-wide rodeo. They had time to practice backing up, parking, and getting the overall feel of a bus again.

Officials said Randolph County Schools transport about 2,500 students daily, so this practice is extremely important to make sure everyone stays safe.

Randy Long, the Director of Transportation for Randolph County Schools, said, "They're able to refresh their memory, get acquainted with the bus again, them being off for three months. It's a good starter point. We have a lot of fun. It's good exercise. It gives them a good opportunity to refresh, and get ready for school."

Summer in Randolph County is winding down, with school starting Monday, the 26th.
