23-24 Transportation Applications Due July 1

Greece Central’s Office of Student Transportation Services is now accepting 2023-24 transportation requests for private, parochial, and charter school students, as well as requests for busing to and from child care facilities. An application must be filed each year that service is requested. Child care transportation is only available for students in grades K-8.

CLICK HERE to complete the child care application.

CLICK HERE to complete the private/parochial/charter school application.

Applications must be completed by July 1. This deadline is important. Bus runs are established in the spring and early summer. Current residents who fail to request transportation by the July 1 deadline are not guaranteed service at the opening of school.

Applications received after July 1 will be accepted, but no new bus stops will be created to accommodate late applicants. Those missing the deadline will be transported from the closest established bus stop.

Parents- Do You Need to Know Who to Call With Questions?

Building trust and ensuring that there are open lines of communication between home and school are essential for student success. We want to be sure you know who to contact with questions or concerns. In December, the district shared a new resource for families. In case you missed it, this linked Who to Call with Questions, Concerns and Compliments reference guide is a step-by-step guide families can use to ensure questions are answered quickly and effectively. Please refer to it whenever you need to speak to someone about your child’s progress. Whether your inquiry is about academics, safety, or services and supports, there are people at the school and district level who are ready to help whenever a question or concern arises.
