First time school bus riders are getting ready for the upcoming school year.
Elk Island Public Schools' Student Transportation is hosting the third annual Little Elk Island Adventure program.
"The program is really to help ease anxiety for families who are about to ride the bus for the very first time," said Trina Boymook, chair of Elk Island Public Schools.
First time riders and their parents will learn a number of things, including how to be safe around the bus and how to behave on the bus.
Kids will also learn about bus rules and why those rules are in place.
The session includes an opportunity for parents and their child to take a short ride on a school bus.
In Sherwood Park, parents and students will have a chance to visit the Kindergarten noon transfer site.
The program has afternoon sessions from August 22 to 24 and a morning course on September 1.
Fort students will be able to attend a session at Fort Christian on August 23 and 6:00 p.m.
Parents can register to attend here.
