Saturday, Feb. 18 @ 3:00 pm | 1 hr 42 min | Adventure, Family, Fantasy

When a tornado rips through Kansas, Dorothy (Judy Garland) and her dog, Toto, are whisked away in their house to the magical land of Oz. They follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard, and en route they meet a Scarecrow (Ray Bolger) that needs a brain, a Tin Man (Jack Haley) missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion (Bert Lahr) who wants courage. The wizard asks the group to bring him the broom of the Wicked Witch of the West (Margaret Hamilton) to earn his help.

We support seat belts on school buses!

flex-seat-with-kids

As of 2016, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) made the recommendation that every child on every school bus should have a three-point seat belt and that the position of the NHTSA is that seat belts save lives.

 

For the safety of our students every child should have a three- point seatbelt!
