Bus drivers, monitors, mechanics and support staff will be guests of honor at the first of what is expected to be an annual Fiesta appreciation breakfast. Provisions for the meal of pancakes, scrambled eggs and sausage were paid for by managers of SAISD’s Department of Transportation, who will cook the vittles onsite on an industrial-sized grill. Breakfast will be served buffet style in the courtyard and each guest also will receive colorful beads as a keepsake.

The breakfast is being held as a way to thank and acknowledge transportation department employees for the important role they play in student academic success by ensuring the bus riders arrive at school before the start of instructional time.
