Shelby County Schools Students Head Back To Class

Shelby County Schools Students Head Back To Class

There is a long list of things to get done, from back to school shopping lists, buying school clothes and setting up after school programs.

With students back in school across Northeast Mississippi, school district officials are asking all drivers to do their part in helping buses transport students safely. Fayetteville's School District also requires drivers to pass a Department of Transportation physical.

Even though there is a bit of work involved, Davenport says driving school buses is a rewarding experience. Davenport says, "She was in first grade when she started riding the school bus".

Dekalb Central School bus No.14 was on schedule for its route through the Mason's village subdivision, until "it began with an engine light", said Michelle Pfefferkorn, a school bus driver for DeKalb Central School.

Parents have to take responsibility for what their children do and see.

After the Valley school bus crash in May, which injured 16 children and killed a 70-year-old driver, Bangle said it became a priority for first responders to increase training to be better prepared.

"We actually did a huge MCI drill this summer", Bangle said.

"Typical injuries when a bus rolls over you'll see injuries to arms or legs", Bangle said.

Income tax returns filed up 25%, advance personal income tax by 42%
The last date for filing of income tax returns by individuals and HUFs, who need not get their accounts audited, was August 5. More than 400 cases were referred by the department to the Enforcement Directorate and CBI.

While bus drivers and students are well-versed in bus safety, Harmon hopes others on the roads will be just as cautious.

"They just need to be extra careful because of what the bus is carrying", Hill said.

However, Hill said the district's bus drivers are well-equipped to handle them.
