Bus Attendant
Lester B. Pearson HS

Thank you for considering the Ottawa Catholic School Board as a potential Employer. We are looking for enthusiastic and compassionate individuals to join our team. Under the direction of the Principal, the Bus Attendant is responsible for the bus loading and unloading of dependently handicapped children and ensuring their comfort and safety during transportation. The Attendant works closely with school staff and the vehicle driver to assist in safe transfer of the students to and from school. The Attendant maintains an appropriate medical log as required, and performs other duties, as assigned. Bus Attendants must be available to work before and after school on split shifts. There is no guarantee of hours on a daily or weekly basis, as this is dependent on location of the student(s), school and the Attendant. There is no requirement for the Attendant to have access to their own transportation, as the Bus will pick up and drop off the Attendant at their residence.
