Dear Parents,

At this time, we are reviewing bus eligibility for the upcoming school year.  As you are aware, there is a change in eligibility for students entering grades 3-6.  Since your child is moving into this category, there may be change in bus service.   Your eligibility is dependent upon your distance code and bus availability.  Please see below:

  • For distance code B, student will no longer be eligible for a bus.  He/She may receive a half fare Metrocard.
  • For distance code C and D, you should be ok.  However, there may be a change in September.  This is dependent upon bus availability and the number of students on a bus.  The Office of Pupil Transportation makes the final decision.

Please note: These guidelines are on the OPT website.  You can also refer to Chancellor Regulation A-801.

If you need further clarification, please contact Ms. Pate.  Thank you.
