First Ride Program is a school bus safety program, offered by Grande Prairie Public School Division, Grande Prairie & District Catholic Schools and First Student, that introduces young children and their parents to the school bus and school bus safety. The program consists of a 30 minutes presentation that is focused on school bus safety, 10 minutes video followed by a short ride on a school bus. The program is offered twice a year.
"First Ride" is a positive learning experience for you and your child. This program gives parents and students a basic understanding of safety, rules, and procedures on the school bus. We hope you will be able to take part in the "First Ride Program".
This is a free program focused on students entering preschool, kindergarten, and grade 1 who will use the bus in the fall; however, any student who is new to busing or would like a refresher can attend. No need to register.
