The Olympia School District is joining the rest of the country this week, October 17-21, in celebrating National School Bus Safety Week.
National School Bus Safety Week reminds students, parents, teachers and the community to keep school bus safety at the forefront. The theme this year nationally is 1 Bus + 1 Driver = A Big Impact on Education.
The Olympia School District’s Transportation team transports an average of 5,300 students to and from school every day.
Judy Cole, administrative assistant specialist for Transportation, will retire on Friday, September 30 after 28 years with the Olympia School District.
Employees are welcome to stop by the Transportation department between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on September 30 to wish Judy well and enjoy cake, cookies and coffee. The department is located at 3000 RW Johnson Road S.E.
