Dear Parent/Guardian:

School bus registration is now open for the 2019-2020 school year. All families who choose school bus transportation, whether town-paid or fee-based, must register on or before March 31, 2019.

 

Students in Kindergarten through grade 6 living more than two miles from their districted schools are eligible to receive town-paid transportation.  Students in Kindergarten through grade 6 living less than two miles from their districted schools and all students in grades 7 to 12 are eligible for fee-based transportation, based on space availability.

 

The transportation fee for the 2019-2020 school year is $300 per student and is capped at $850 for a family with three or more student riders if registration is postmarked or submitted on-line on or before March 31, 2019. Registrations submitted after March 31, 2019 will be accepted based on space availability and the fee increased to $400 for an individual pass and to $1,150 for the family cap of three or more student riders.

 

There are two ways to register and pay for transportation:

1. On-line Registration and Payment -   Register on-line and pay the transportation fee via UniPayGold  on or before March 31, 2019.  There is a charge for payment by electronic check and an additional fee for payment by credit or debit card.
