The first day of school can always be a little hectic. This is especially true when you have over 700 kindergarten through third grade children that need to be offloaded from their buses and ushered into the school in a timely and safe manner. September 4, 2013 was the first day of classes for Village School and Kattie Evans, the Village School PSA Bus Safety Facilitator, assembled a team of parent volunteers to assist herself, Mr. Brian Schillaci, the principal of Village school, and the rest of the faculty and staff to assure that the first day of school went smoothly.
When asked for her thoughts on the day Mrs. Evans said, "We had more parent volunteers than past years and they all knew and
understood the disembarking protocols. This made the task of getting
the excited students to the designated locations to meet their teachers,
some for the first time, easy. We look forward to greeting the children again on Friday."
On Friday September 6th, the parent volunteers, led by Katie will again be waiting to assist the staff offering our children any assistance they need.
As a parent of two of these students, I want to thank everyone for their help in making their first day of school be a happy and safe one
