At Countrywood Primary Center, Ms. Cacioppo and Ms. Lamorte’s kindergartners were introduced to a two-part bus safety program. The first part of the Buster program took place in the All Purpose Room (APR) where a Huntington Coach instructor spoke to the students about ways to be safe on a school bus. Then “Buster” (a small motorized bus) was cued to enter the APR. Buster questioned the students on ways to be safe on the bus. The children were in awe of “Buster” and were delighted when he talked to them.

The second part took place outside where Buster introduced the students to his big brother (a large school bus). The instructor and Buster demonstrated safe crossing procedures. At the conclusion of the program, Buster thanked the students for their participation and all students received a gift. All of the kindergarten classes will attend the program over the course of a couple of weeks.
