HOUSTON — In honor of National School Bus Safety Week, Houston Independent School District’s (HISD) transportation team got their creative juices flowing and created a bus safety music video called “School Bus Shuffle.”

Transportation Field Safety Investigator Curtis Harris, who is also a local musician, came up with a catchy song and some equally catchy dance moves to remind students and drivers about staying safe on the school bus.

“I wanted to do something fun that would get the students’ attention, but also teach them an important lesson,” Harris said. “HISD drivers transport over 30,000 students every day on our school buses, and we take pride in keeping our kids safe.”

The video covers such safety topics as using the handrail when boarding the school bus, keeping one’s feet out of the aisle and reporting instances of bullying to the bus driver.

Performers in the video include HISD bus drivers, as well as students from Yates High school, Peck Elementary and the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. The school district’s multimedia department helped Harris produce the video.
