Application, Fees & Due Dates
During the month of April students will receive a Transportation Packet containing rules and regulations, frequently asked questions, and all pertinent forms.
The fee is $255 per student with a $510 family cap. The fee is refundable only if the School Department cannot provide the service. Aside from this exception, and because buses must be contracted in advance, the fee is non refundable and will be not be prorated in any manner or for any reason. The seat purchased is not transferable to another route.
The application and payment in full must be submitted by July 1. This payment insures that your child is included on the bus list as routes are developed during the summer. Applications and payments received after July 1 will be considered late and will be honored only if space is available and if there is an existing stop on the route.
Subject to the availability of seats and an existing bus stop, applications for children whose parents/guardians are experiencing an emergency situation will be accepted and processed during the school year. Applications submitted under this provision must be accompanied by a written explanation of the nature of the emergency and any supportive documentation requested by the School Department. A committee comprised of the Chairman of the School Committee, the Superintendent of Schools and a Principal will review, act on such emergency requests and, if approved, set a prorated fee.
