Transportation & Bus Routes


BUS TRANSPORTATION REGISTRATION FOR 2017-2018

 

We are beginning the process of establishing our bus routes for the 2017-2018 school year. In order to create efficient routes with centrally located stops, we ask that you register your child(ren) prior to Friday, June 16, 2017 .

You must register your child(ren) for transportation annually. If your child(ren) live less than 2 miles from your assigned school and are in grade 6 or your child(ren) are in grades 7-12, there is a fee of $260 per child with a family cap of $520. Students in grades K-6 who live two miles or more from their assigned school will be transported free of charge but must still register for transportation.

 As a reminder, the new Transportation Policy adopted by the School Committee on April 27, 2015 includes the following:

 

·  The routes will run primarily along main streets.

·  Students will not cross main roads unless there is a crossing guard or stop light present.

·  The length of routes would be determined by the number of stops, and this depends on ridership.

·  Service for students in grades 7-12 will be provided on FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE BASIS. There will be limited seats on each bus.

·  No bus passes will be distributed until the bus fee is paid in full.

 

The deadline for registration is June 16, 2017.  In order for your child to be registered for the bus, you must sign and complete this form and forward to the Business Office.  Registrations will be processed in the order in which they are received.

 The address for the Business Office is 535 Bliss Road, Longmeadow, MA 01106. Checks or money orders may be made payable to the Longmeadow Public Schools. Payment in full is required at the time of registration or your child will not be considered registered and will not be included in routing.

 Late registrations after June 16, 2017 will be processed in the order received and some buses may fill to capacity. Therefore, seating will not be guaranteed after the registration deadline and late registrants may be put on a waiting list.
