Oak Hills Local School District transports students Kindergarten – 8th grade who live two miles or more from their school.  Transportation is based on your residential address.

The Transportation Department determines routes, bus stops, assigns drivers for classroom and/or athletic field trips and plans for inclement weather. We currently have 44 drivers, 15 bus aides and 10 crossing guards that work to keep our students safe every day!

Our department transports:  1,833 public school students, 633 parochial school students and 315 specialized students, with a total of 2,781 students every day of the school year.

We have three mechanics that service our 41 school buses, district vans, maintenance vehicles and lawn equipment throughout the district.

All students are required to be at their bus stop five minutes before the scheduled pick up time. We will not wait for students who are not at their stops. This is for the safety of your children.

All approved paperwork should be completed and received by Transportation Office at least 15 days in advance of the trip. All classroom field trips must be between the hours of 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. That is leaving school at 9:00 a.m. and returning to your building by 2:00 p.m.
