PRIVATE AND PAROCHIAL SCHOOLS
TRANSPORTATION REQUESTS DEADLINE, DUE April 1, 2015
The North Shore School District would like to remind all parents and guardians of children attending private and parochial schools that transportation requests for the 2015-16 school year must be submitted in person at the Transportation Office by April 1, 2015 or sent by Certified Mail postmarked on or before April 1, 2015. Failure to submit the transportation request form by the due date may result in your child being ineligible for district transportation for the 2015-16 school year. In this case, the cost and arrangement for transportation will be parental responsibility. The State Education Department and the Board of Education require that a separate application be filed each year even if your child is already receiving transportation.
In accordance with New York State Education Law, transportation requests received after the above date will not be accepted unless a reasonable explanation is given for the delay or the District can provide the transportation under existing arrangements without additional expense. A belated decision to enroll a student into school is not a reasonable explanation for late submission of a transportation request. Those students who move into the District after the expiration of the deadline can still submit a written request for transportation provided such request is made within thirty (30) days after establishing residence in the district.
Please call the Transportation Office at 277-7930 or print the form from the District Website at: www.northshoreschools.org. The form may be dropped off or sent to North Shore Schools, Transportation Department, PO Box 412, 340 Shore Road, Glenwood Landing, N.Y., 11547-0412.
