REMINDER: Driver Shortage Could Result in Canceled, Delayed Routes

Dear Highland Parents,
As you are aware, the Highland School District is among a large number of districts nationwide that continue to struggle to fill transportation jobs. Currently, our Transportation Department is extremely short-staffed and there is the likelihood that your student(s) will be impacted by this driver shortage in some way -- including canceled or delayed routes -- with little warning.

We again ask that parents consider making alternative plans (rideshare with a neighbor, enlist the help of a grandparent or other available family member, etc.) if possible, to transport your child to and from school, should the need arise. We apologize for these occurrences in advance.

Parents will be notified via phone/text if their child’s route has been impacted. Please be sure your contact information is current in FinalForms.

As always, we appreciate your patience and willingness to work with us during this continued transportation dilemma. Should you have any questions, please contact the Transportation Department at 330-239-1901, ext. 1219 or via email at transportation@highlandschools.org. Thank you.
