He's On The Road Again!

First Student's safety mascot, Safety Dog, is traveling coast-to-coast again this back-to-school season (#SafetyDogBusTour). Safety Dog helps students put a face on safety while understanding the importance of safe school bus behavior.

“I love my job! I travel all over the country to meet the teachers, parents and students in our communities. I remind them of safe school bus behaviors. I love meeting new people!”
- Safety Dog
