Attention ABC Head Start Parents! 
We are always looking for ways to improve & make our program the best and safest it can be for you and your children. So you may have noticed a new addition to your child's school bus - seat belts! This is called integrated seating. Your role as a parent is to make sure your child is safely buckled in and to unbuckle them when they arrive home. Please watch this video to gain some helpful tips and understanding of the seat belt system. If you have any questions please contact your site Social Worker for more information.
