It is the policy of the school system to provide transportation to all elementary school students who live more than one- mile from the school and for students in sixth through 12th grade who live more than one and one-half miles from school. Distances may be waived at the discretion of the superintendent for children with health reasons or whose streets are considered hazardous. The school system attempts to pick up and deliver students as close to home as possible. The full policy, including transportation for students in vocational and private schools, is on the district website. The bus hotline is 203-594-4004.
