School bus drivers pay tribute to new graduates by spelling ‘2020’ with their buses

For students graduating in 2020, it’s safe to say that this isn’t how anyone imagined their senior years going.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all of our lives and canceled virtually all public events, forcing most seniors to miss out on once-in-a-lifetime rituals like graduation and prom.

But their friends, family and faculty have been doing everything they can to celebrate this special time in their lives, even with so much going on.

And at one high school, the most special tribute came from those who have seen these students to school every morning: the bus drivers.

Loveland City Schools, in Loveland, Ohio, shared a video of a tribute from their transportation department. The bus drivers formed a giant “2020” with their buses, and waved to the graduates in an aerial shot:

We don’t tend to think of bus drivers as part of students’ lives like we do teachers and principals, but many of these employees watched the students grow up and wanted to do something special for their graduation.
