Head Start Transportation System in Blair County PA

The transportation system at Blair County Head Start provides a safe way for preschool children to get to school, but it requires the cooperation of parents and staff.

The program ensures children who receive transportation services are taught safe riding practices, safety procedures for boarding and leaving the vehicle and for crossing the street to and from the vehicle at stops, recognition of the danger zones around the vehicle, and emergency evacuation procedures, including participating in an emergency evacuation drill conducted on the vehicle the child will be riding.

Children must wear child restraints while on the bus. Bus Aides will help the children with buckling up. Pick up and drop off is possible at some, but not all child care centers in Blair County.
