School bus safety week aims to educate community

Each year, Camas School District joins school districts across the country to highlight its education efforts to students, parents, and the public about the importance of school bus safety during National School Bus Safety Week, which lasts through Friday.

“In the Camas School District, we have over 70 school buses and they transport more than 5,000 students to and from school each school day and travel over half a million miles a year,” said Director of Transportation Laura Nowland. “During School Bus Safety Week, we want to inform the citizens of our district about our pupil transportation program. Our Camas school bus drivers are doing a great job, but they need the cooperation of other motorists.”

“Motorists are required to stop for stopped school buses that are displaying flashing red lights and a stop arm,” Nowland said.

“The Servant of Two Masters,” was written in 1743 in the Italian tradition of “Commedia Dell’Arte.” It centers on Truffaldino, a young, simpleminded and occasionally clever servant who finds himself in over his head when he impulsively agrees to manage two masters at the same time without either of them knowing about it. The plot also includes two pairs of swooning lovers, two angry fathers, and a host of additional simpleminded servants.
