IRCSD Transportation First Semester Opt-Out

Update: IRCSD Transportation First Semester Opt-Out

IRCSD Transportation First Semester Opt-OutUpdate (8/6/2020):

Thank you to our parents who have responded thus far to our transportation opt out survey for the first semester of the 2020-2021 school year!  As a reminder, you do not need to complete the transportation opt out survey if you must rely on the bus to get your child or children to and from school.  In these cases, we will plan on your child riding the bus.  Schedules for the schools will remain the same in terms of drop off and pick up times (8:45 AM and 3:30 PM for elementary;  7:15 AM and 2:25 PM for middle and high school).  For those of you driving your children to school, thank you for assisting us in this regard!  We will need to designate safe, drop off and pick-up procedures and areas which are as far away as possible from the bus loading and unloading areas of each school.  These procedures will be communicated to you in advance of school opening.  For those of you who responded on the survey that you could transport one way, or provide partial transportation, unfortunately we are not able to accommodate this request at this time so your responses will be accepted but we will plan on transporting your child to and from school until further notice. Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do to support our efforts to safely reopen school this fall! 


Original Post (8/5/2020):

Based on the Community Reopening Survey, it is clear that many of our families would like to transport their children to school each day.  In an effort to solidify plans for the start of school, the District needs your help!  If you do not intend to have your child ride a bus, please complete this form (one form per student) by August 14th.  

Student transportation will be provided for in-person learning consistent with state-issued guidance and NYSED School Reopening guidelines. Some key highlights are:

Students must wear a mask on the school bus.  Students who do not have a mask will be provided one before getting on the bus.  Students must social distance on the bus.  Students will sit in a zig-zag pattern in the bus seats with one student per seat.  Students from the same household will sit together in seats.  

Parents and legal guardians are encouraged to drive or walk students to school if they are able to in order to reduce density on buses.  

If your child will be riding the bus, you do not need to fill out this form.  Thank you for your continued support of IRCSD!
