Although we are all excited to enjoy the rest and relaxation that comes with summer vacation, there are a few important things that need to be done to get ready for the next school year.
By now, all families should have received important information from our new tuition company FACTS Management. Please look for the email dated June 1, 2018 which requires that families designate a payment option for the new school year. If, after checking your spam folder, you have not received the email, please contact Mrs. McKoy at 718-263-2622 so that she can insure that the email gets to you. We will no longer be using Smart Tuition so please make sure that any automatic payments are redirected to FACTS. All the perinent information is included in the original email from FACTS.
Secondly, many students, based on their age AND their distance from school may be eligible for either a Metrocard OR Yellow Bus service. If you are interested in applying for either of these programs and your child will be going into Kindergarten to 8th Grade (Yellow Bus is K-6), please click the link below and complete the form. Please know that your acceptance into either of these programs is STRICTLY monitored by the Department of Transportation and the Department of Education. You can find the eligibility requirements for the Yellow Bus by clicking this link: http://www.optnyc.org/ServicesAndEligibility/getransportation.htm . Eligibility requirements for the Metrocard program are listed at the following link: http://www.optnyc.org/ServicesAndEligibility/metrocards.htm . We have no leeway in assinging either Metrocards or Bus Stops, we may only follow the decisions made by the agencies.
Metrocards will be distributed the first week of school and the process of assigning bus stops will take about 2 weeks into September to be finalized. Even if your child has already received a Metrocard or is using the Yellow Bus, please click the link below to apply.
If you have any transportation questions, please contact Mrs. Scapp at 718-263-2622 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy the summer months and all they have to offer.
