Happy August to all Arizona Transportation Professionals,
Well, we have made it to another school year.
Is everyone surviving the Arizona Heat?
What are some methods out there that drivers are using to help cool their buses?
In my district, I encourage our drivers to ‘hose down the buses’ before they leave in the afternoon.
I might not be a great way but at least it can drop the outside bus body temp a few degrees so your A/C doesn’t have to work so hard to cool our Yellow and Black Metal Box.
Some districts have bus washing systems and I have heard that drivers can drive through and let the water cool the outer shell.
Well, if it helps us, I heard this morning on the News we have 151 days until Christmas.
AAPT is currently working on setting up the registration forms for the October 14, 2023 conference in Florence Arizona. This should be done about the time you receive this update, be looking on our website www.azpupiltransportation.com for the latest information.
We want to thank the Transportation Crew at Florence Unified School District for hosting our 2023 conference.
Hopefully, everyone had a chance to enjoy the time off and refresh your body, mind, and spirit. Our students deserve well rested adults who are committed to providing safe transportation.
I know there has been lots of training going on around the state and departments are ready to go.
Let us all have a great start, please know that we are all in for this quest of safe transportation. AAPT is there for you and your district.
Stay cool, be safe and know that we love you and the job each one of you do every day.
