Parents Of Catholic School Students In Penn Hills Face Bus Dilemma

PENN HILLS (KDKA) — Some parents in Penn Hills aren’t happy about their choices when it comes to getting their kids to school on time.

The District is obligated to bus students who live in Penn Hills to Oakland Catholic and Catholic Central high schools in the city.

But, on Monday, parents received a letter stating they may have to make a choice: drop their children off at a central location so they can all be transported at the same time, or ride the same buses that Penn Hills students ride before they are taken to their buildings.

The school board says it’s looking into the matter, but that the letter came from the contracted transportation company, not the district.

“We’re just concerned about our children getting to school on time,” said parent Larry Puszko.

Classes start on Wednesday for Penn Hills students and on Thursday for the kids who attend the Catholic schools.
