Kindergarten students in the Parkway School District are being invited to ride the "Big Yellow School Bus" in August.

Each Parkway elementary school offers a bus safety program for kindergarten students prior to the first day of school, which is set for Aug. 14. Students learn about riding the school bus with the help of the Parkway transportation mascot, "Buster the Bus," and the accompanying "Buster Crew." "Buster" is a school bus robot that helps students learn about bus safety.

Following the 15- to 20-minute visit with "Buster," students take a 10-minute ride on a school bus.
