Welcome to Transportation

  • Who is eligible?

    School bus transportation is available to resident students in grades one through twelve who live beyond a quarter mile of the school. Extra consideration is given to children in Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten.

    Transportation is also provided for students attending private and parochial schools within fifteen miles of the child's home. Families with children attending non-public schools are reminded that requests for transportation must be submitted to the school district every year by April 1st of the preceding year (click here for the Transportation Request Form). Transportation will follow the calendar of the child's school. However, transportation will not be provided when the Pocantico Hills Central School District is closed.

    If you have any questions or special concerns regarding transportation schedules, please call Jane Anastasi at 631-2440 ext. 707 or stop by the Business Office.

    School Bus Safety Rules & Student Responsitilibies During COVID-19

    In order to maintain the safest possible transportation for all Pocantico students, we are implementing the following additional safety rules:

     Parents, please discuss these rules with your children.

    1. All families must assure their child is ready to ride before arriving at the bus stop.
    2. Students should be at their stops 5 minutes before their scheduled time and maintain social distancing at school bus stops.
    3. All passengers must wait for the driver’s directions to get on the bus. One at a time.
    4. All students will board the bus in a single file and occupy their assigned seats as directed by the bus monitor. Students are not permitted to change their seats at this time.
    5. Students must stay seated with masks and seatbelts on for the duration of the trip.
    6. Whenever possible, students should refrain from touching surfaces like windows, seats, etc!
    7. Students should stay seated and wait until the bus driver or monitor directs them before removing their seatbelts and disembarking the bus.
    8. Be a good passenger. Follow the bus drivers and monitor instructions at all times.
    9. No eating or drinking on the bus.

    Please note:   All students will be assigned to ride the same bus to and from school. Unfortunately, we are not able to allow changes for playdates or other social engagements at this time.  If there is an emergency situation requiring a bus change, please contact Jane Anastasi at  X707, before 2:30 PM or the Principal’s office at X153 and we will do our best to accommodate the situation.
