On Friday, Sept. 13, a crowd of Henderson fifth graders sat down at tables with red and white checkered tablecloths as they scanned through a menu full of delicious brain food. A server soon arrived at each of their tables with a platter of books. “Be careful now, the plates are very hot,” exclaimed the waitress. As part of a student “book tasting,” Henderson Elementary transformed their library into a restaurant for the day. However, instead of serving delicious plates of pasta, salads, and soup, they served daily specials of non-fiction, mystery, and fantasy.

While the FHSD transportation Department is new this year, what’s not new is the dedication and skill of many of the bus drivers. For Hannah Scharfenberg, driving a bus is more than just a job. It’s a mission to keep students safe during the commute to school. Each year, she participates in safety bus competitions to continue her growth as a driver. In June she won the 2019 State School Bus Safety Competition hosted by the Missouri Association for Pupil Transportation. As state champion, she earned the right to compete in the Annual School Bus Driver International Safety Competition hosted by the National School Transportation Association (NSTA) where she placed fifth in the nation.

FHSD Bus Transportation Update
FHSD Bus Transportation Update
31 July 2019
The FHSD Transportation Department wants to take this opportunity to remind our parents about some of the changes with our new Francis Howell buses. New routing software will assign pick up/drop off locations for students that comply with the state guidelines. This includes ensuring that bus stops are at least 500 ft. apart, the minimum recommended distance to activate warning lights. This year we are creating more neighborhood bus stops instead of specific house stops. This also means FHSD buses may not be traveling up and down every street in every neighborhood, especially for secondary students. In order to make our routes as efficient as possible, we are encouraging parents to inform their school office if they do not need school bus transportation.
