February 8-12 is Love the Bus Week in North Carolina.  The American School Bus Council began the Love the Bus program to raise awareness and to show appreciation for the hundreds of thousands of school bus drivers who safely transport children to and from school each day in the United States. In North Carolina, nearly 800,000 students are transported to and from school every day.  In addition, the Love the Bus program is an opportunity to raise awareness about school bus transportation and safety.  Elkin City Schools is proud to recognize our drivers:  Danyelle Hampton, Amanda Hurt, Vickie Mendenhall, Earl Mounce, Bob Norton, Larry Powell, BD Reece,  Anthony Shropshire, and Bill Owen (substitute driver).  Each of the Elkin City schools has special events planned this week to recognize our drivers and show our appreciation for the wonderful job they do transporting our students.  They have an outstanding attendance record, work very well together as a team, and show tremendous care for our students.  We are very fortunate to have such an outstanding group of drivers.  For further information about School Bus Safety and Love the Bus, please visit the following websites:
