FHSD Bus Driver Hannah Scharfenberg - A Champion of Bus Safety
06 August 2019
While the FHSD transportation Department is new this year, what’s not new is the dedication and skill of many of the bus drivers. For Hannah Scharfenberg, driving a bus is more than just a job. It’s a mission to keep students safe during the commute to school. Each year, she participates in safety bus competitions to continue her growth as a driver. In June she won the 2019 State School Bus Safety Competition hosted by the Missouri Association for Pupil Transportation. As state champion, she earned the right to compete in the Annual School Bus Driver International Safety Competition hosted by the National School Transportation Association (NSTA) where she placed fifth in the nation.

FHSD Bus Transportation Update
FHSD Bus Transportation Update
31 July 2019
The FHSD Transportation Department wants to take this opportunity to remind our parents about some of the changes with our new Francis Howell buses. New routing software will assign pick up/drop off locations for students that comply with the state guidelines. This includes ensuring that bus stops are at least 500 ft. apart, the minimum recommended distance to activate warning lights. This year we are creating more neighborhood bus stops instead of specific house stops. This also means FHSD buses may not be traveling up and down every street in every neighborhood, especially for secondary students. In order to make our routes as efficient as possible, we are encouraging parents to inform their school office if they do not need school bus transportation.

Classroom Treat Policy Change
Classroom Treat Policy Change
22 July 2019
Due to the growing number of allergies and health concerns experienced by our students, FHSD is making changes to Student Wellness Regulation 2750, which addresses food brought in for early childhood and elementary classroom parties and birthday celebrations. Starting with the 2019-20 school year, outside treats will no longer be allowed to be brought to school for class sharing. This change will help maintain the safety of all students with life-threatening food allergies or other dietary restrictions. Parents will still be able to bring in non-food items, such as stickers, pencils, etc., for birthday celebrations.
