Calling all OCDSB and OCSB Students Grade K-12!

Students, show your driver you care – Create a thank you card!

Saturday, June 18, 2022, is OSTA’s Virtual Driver Appreciation Day, a day in which we recognize and thank our many dedicated drivers and walking school bus (WSB) leaders for getting students to and from school safely every day. We commend all yellow bus, wheelchair bus, van drivers, and walking school bus (WSB) leaders who have gone above and beyond their duties to ensure children in our city have access to education.

This year, help us recognize all drivers and WSB leaders by sharing your thanks with us online or on social media, so your yellow bus, wheelchair bus, van driver or walking school bus (WSB) leader gets the recognition they deserve!
