Transportation Safety Precautions
Safety precautions remain a priority on all Highland school buses throughout the year.  

  • Automatic hand sanitizer mounted on each bus
  • Use of assigned seating on each bus route
  • Buses cleaned and disinfected regularly
  • Students only permitted to ride their assigned bus. If a change is needed due to childcare, parent must complete the required FORMPlease note, any change will take 72 hours to process. Student(s) will not be permitted to ride other buses for the purpose of visiting friends. 

We also ask that parents perform a wellness check on their child(ren) prior to boarding the bus in the morning. If not feeling well, we ask that you do not send your student(s) to school. 

Any questions regarding bus routes or other transportation information, please call (330) 239-1901, ext. 1219. Thank you for your cooperation.


Inclement Weather and Highland Transportation

  • When the Highland District decides to operate on a two-hour delay or to close for the day, local media is alerted and an announcement banner is placed on the district website home page (www.highlandschools.org).
  • Two-hour Delay:  All buses will operate two hours later than the normal schedule.
