Illinois Central School Bus would like to acknowledge Jeff Kuhn, Manager of our Dixon location and the members of the Dixon team for their participation on the safe and orderly transport of hundreds of students after the shooting incident at Dixon High School yesterday, May 16, 2018.
Many thanks to the Dixon Illinois-Central drivers and staff that responded to the emergency situation. The Dixon location had eleven drivers safely fight the traffic and confusion to transport the students from several pick up locations to the Dixon National Guard Armory for role call prior to transporting them to Page Park Baseball Field approximately one mile from the school to be reunited with their parents.

Drivers -Susan Schrock, Carolyn Moore, Cindy Thompson, Jerilyn McLaughlin, Angel Stake, Cheryl Yeater, David Jiminez, Dennis Grove, Staff Members – Justin Elwood, Mike Mulhstadt, Gary Wilson and a special thank you to dispatcher Tracy Ranken for handling the huge volume of calls from parents. All kept their composure and acted very professionally with the students and law enforcement.
