Request for Transportation to Non-Public School

New York State School Law requires that a written request be made EACH YEAR for transportation to a non-public school. Parent or legal guardian prior to April 1st of the upcoming school year must submit this request to the Transportation Department. The only exception is when families move into the district later then the April 1st in which case the request should be made within 30 days after establishing residency within the district. If your home residence is beyond 15 miles from the school of request, it is best suggested that you contact the transportation office @ (914) 528-4445 for details.
