I hope this correspondence finds you and your family doing well!
In anticipation of students being back to school in the fall, we will once again be offering bus transportation for the 20-21 school year. In light of the current situation, we have made some changes to the process. Please note that, as our fall plans evolve, transportation routines may change.
The bus application is now online and can be accessed at stoughtontransportation.com. You will need to complete an application for each child in your family that will be riding the bus. Massachusetts General Law requires school departments to provide transportation for any student in Grades K – 6 living more than 2+ miles from their assigned school. This year, all students in Grades K-6 who are 2+ miles from their school and are planning on taking the bus, MUST complete a bus application in order to have a seat on the bus. You will not automatically be placed on a bus.
REGISTRATION ONLY FOR THE “PAY AND RIDE” PROGRAM IS: TUESDAY, MAY 26, 2020 – FRIDAY, JUNE 26, 2020
We understand that due to the pandemic, this is a difficult time for our families. The application deadline is June 26 but, we are extending the payment deadline to mid-August, 2020.
Master Card, VISA, Bank Checks, Money Orders and Cash are the only forms of payment accepted by Stoughton Public Schools. NO PERSONAL CHECKS WILL BE ACCEPTED! Payments can be mailed or dropped off to: Stoughton Public Schools District Office, 31 Pierce Street, Stoughton, MA 02072 - ATTN: Transportation Department.
Please review our transportation policies and guidelines here. ANY APPLICATIONS RECEIVED AFTER THE JUNE 26 DEADLINE WILL BE PUT ON THE WAITING LIST!!
