Apple Country Head Start recieves grant to purchase a new school bus

The new bus is the largest they have, seating 28 kids as well as the driver

WINCHESTER, Va. - Apple Country Head Start in the Northern Shenandoah Valley has been awarded a grant  to purchase a 28-seat passenger bus. 
 
The bus will be used to transport children to and from the head start programs.
 
Apple Country Head Start is a federally-funded, state-licensed, preschool program that serves 162 children in Frederick County, Clarke County and the City of Winchester.
 
The school provides comprehensive preschool and child development services for low-income eligible children ages three to five. 
 
"We're lucky enough to have a contract with Clarke County and Frederick County as well as Winchester to help with some of the transportation. But it is a major thing to be able to get kids to and from school. With the cost of things going up, it's better for us to have our own means," said Thea Thomas, Executive Director for Apple Country Head Start.
 
Apple Country Head Start is looking to hire a new bus drivers, including one to drive the new bus.
