Bus Drivers Needed for Sporting Events and Field Trips

Fall is the perfect time to take a bus driver training course with BRPS! Would you consider becoming a bus driver to help with our field trips or serve our student athletes?  Black River Public School will partner with you and prepare you for this important role. Maybe you, your parent or someone you know is recently retired or has a job with flexible afternoons and evenings.  Anyone interested in getting started with driving certification should contact Kelli Heneghan (heneghank@brpsk12.org) for more information.
