all of our VAPT members, I hope everyone’s healthy and you have had
the chance to adjust to new schedules and habits. This has been a
year for the history books. Let’s keep our spirits up, be helpful to
each other, stay in touch with friends (from a distance), and remain
positive about the future.
There are many questions that come to mind when it comes to school
transportation, how do you social distance on a bus? how do we
manage an in-service meeting and what will that look like in the
future, we have questions about DMV third-party testing, physicals,
and much, much more.
Answers should be coming soon as we plan as a country to go back to
work. We will try to keep you updated as we receive information from
In the meantime, many of you are staying busy delivering food and
setting up remote sites using Wi-Fi to assist students with
continued virtual learning. Try to keep active. The distractions
seem to ease some of the tension people are feeling.
In difficult times, the things that make life what it is are still
there – they just need a little bit more effort. Our grandparents
lived through wars, depression, and sickness. Worse, they didn’t
even have Netflix and Amazon Prime. But they prospered. Let’s focus
today on preparing for a better future – it is ours to make.
Thank you and stay safe.
