Safe School Buses
Congratulations to our District Bus Technicians Trini Vigil, Mike Kurtz, David Philips, Tracy Wolgamott, Ben Hiller and Tom Spellman, shop supervisor, for an excellent job during our annual surprise inspection. Washington State Patrol arrived unannounced November 16 to inspect 25 percent of the district’s school buses.
Inspections statewide for the current year list 8.5 percent of buses as out of service, our team had 0 percent – meaning no out of service buses. This team rarely has the opportunity to interact directly with students, however, they work daily to ensure every student, staff and driver on a Lake Washington school bus has the safest possible ride to and from school and activities. Thank you, technicians! - LWSD release.
