There are only 25 days left for you to get your application in for out-of-district, non-public school busing for next year. Here are the details from the Tuckahoe School District.
If your child will be attending an out-of-district, non-public school in 2013-2014, and he/she will need school bus or train service, an Out-of-District Non-Public Transportation Application must be completed and returned by fax or mail to the address listed on the form by April 1, 2013. Along with the application two (2) proofs of residency must be submitted. Proof of residency consists of a copy of your deed, co-op shares, property tax bill or current lease (valid thru June 2014) together with one of the following - Con Edison bill, water bill or cable bill. Applications may be downloaded from the District’s website.
This application must be received by the April 1st deadline as required by New York State Education Law. There are no exceptions. Applications received after April 1st will not be approved.
Applications for children entering Kindergarten must be accompanied by a copy of their birth certificate. Applications for busing to a school more than 15 miles from the student’s home cannot be approved.
All eligible students will be routed and bus stop locations and times will be sent to you in August. No busing will be provided on orientation days, legal holidays (Labor, Columbus, Veteran’s, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Memorial Day) or any day the Tuckahoe School District is closed due to weather conditions.
If you change the school your child will be attending or know that your child will not use school bus service in 2013-2014, please contact my office. Any questions about this application, please call – Karen Barros at 337-6600, extension 1262.
