There are more than 100 school bus staff and 1400 bus students in 51 routes, which is the huge school bus network of NACIS Shanghai.
How to ensure the safe driving of every school bus and the safety and comfort of each student?
At present, we have 51 school bus routes, covering all central urban areas and some suburbs. Every year we increase and optimize school bus routes based on the needs of students, so as to provide more convenient services for our families. We cooperate with 2 school bus companies including Shanghai Jinjiang Business And Travel Auto Service Co.,Ltd. and Shanghai Daoshun Automobile Service Co., LTD., which provide large special school buses for NACIS Shanghai. Both companies have professional school bus operation qualifications.
Each driver and Ayi must receive professional pre-job training. They can start to work after obtaining no-crime evidence and passing child protection training test.
School buses operate at 7 am. every day. Bus drivers and bus Ayis will wait at the departure stop in advance to welcome children and call the roll one by one. During driving, bus Ayis will urge children to wear seat belts and observe bus rules, so as to help students learn standard etiquette.
In case of students with special circumstances, school bus Ayis and drivers will provide meticulous and considerate help including taking care of lower-grade students and students with leg injuries and carrying luggage for boarding students. When a child is unwell, bus Ayis will take care of him/her and accompany him/her to the school clinic after arriving at school.
51 school buses arrive at school at about eight o 'clock. The smooth traffic tests our management ability. Our support staff direct traffic at every path near the school gate every day. Every staff knows clearly which path to drive in, where to park, and how to leave quickly after students get off the bus.
After students entered the campus safely, bus Ayis will continue their work. They check the daily registration form with school staff to make sure all the information is correct. Under the current normal epidemic prevention, we carry out daily routine disinfection and open windows for ventilation. School buses are also equipped with medical masks, hand sanitizer, vomiting kits and other anti-epidemic materials.
In addition, many other staff also provide support for the “super” team.
At the beginning of each semester, form tutors will lead students to learn the school bus rules. Staff on duty will urge students to take hand disinfection and temperature measurements. Mr. Chris, executive superintendent of NACIS, and heads of primary and secondary greet students at the school gate every day. There are also many other staff who work together to make sure that the school bus can operate smoothly.
As members of the NACIS community, we are all part of the super operation team. With concerted efforts, we can have the impregnable safe operation.
The well-being of all faculty and staff is equally important. 7 shuttle buses travel to and from popular business districts, metro stations near the school and teaching staff’s dormitories to ensure more convenient commutes for our teachers, so that they can devote themselves to daily work in their best state and bring excellent learning experience to students.
In general, NACIS Shanghai always sticks to careful management and warm greetings.
