Out of District -
The district transports pupils to private and parochial schools for a distance not to exceed fifteen (15) miles. If a student lives beyond the 15 mile limit and the district makes a bus run to that particular school, carrying other eligible students, transportation will be provided from a central pickup point. Transportation to and from a central pickup point, however, is the responsibility of the student. Requests for such transportation must be made before April 1 for the following school year. The application form and instructions can be found on the Commack Web site, or obtained at the transportation office.
Children riding buses are issued bus passes. Parents are urged to instruct their children in rules of proper behavior. The school district reserves the right to suspend the privilege of bus transportation for students who threaten the safety and well-being of themselves and/or of other children. The transportation department telephone number is: 912-2020.
