Dear Highland Parents and Guardians,
Please be reminded that due to a federal health order, masking is required for anyone using any form of school transportation (to/from school, athletics, extracurricular activities, etc.) until further notice.
We continue to receive daily reports from drivers that many students are not complying with this required health order while riding the school bus. Students must wear a face mask upon boarding the bus and throughout the entire bus ride. If a student occasionally forgets his/her mask, one will be provided. If a student fails to comply, a bus citation will be issued. Repeated violations will result in the student being removed from the bus.
Bus drivers are doing their very best to keep all students safe. In addition, with the current driver shortage, we simply cannot afford unnecessary driver absences due to illness. Please reiterate to your student(s) the importance of wearing a facemask while riding the school bus.
If you have any questions, please contact the Transportation Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 330-2391-1901, ext. 1219. Thank you for your consideration.
