District Calendar 2016-2017 - Page 5

All unanswered concerns/complaints should be sent to Vincent McHale, Interim Superintendent of Schools, who will respond after making necessary inquiries. If you are not satisfied with the Superintendent’s decision, you may bring the matter to the Board of Education by writing to the Board at One Merrison Street. Transportation The school a child attends is determined according to district lines established by Board of Education policy. Children who have registered for school and are eligible for transportation receive a bus route by the last week of August. Questions about transportation may be addressed to the secretary at the school the child attends. If necessary, parents will be referred to the transportation coordinator. State law requires that transportation be provided as follows:     pupils in grades K-8 who live more than 2 miles from school; pupils in grades 9-12 who live more than 2.5 miles from school; physically handicapped and special education, when needed; and pupils attending non-profit private or parochial schools in New Jersey who meet the age and distance requirement established by the Board of Education policy, not exceeding a 20-mile radius of their homes. Children who live within walking distance of their school may not use the school buses at any time. Parents/guardians are responsible for walking their children to and from the bus stop. If you cannot meet your child in the afternoon, we recommend that you arrange for someone to meet your child at the bus stop. Courtesy busing will be provided for students in grades pre-school through fourth who reside more than 1.3 miles (the busing triggers at 1.4 miles) from their school of attendance. Seat belts are used for all public and private school transportation. Procedures have been established between kindergarten and the elementary school child c &R&w&2F&fFRFV&'6&RbFRF7G&7N( 2VvW7B6G&VFPWfVBFB&VB2BBFR'W27FvVFR6B0G&VBfbࠥFVV66VGVGV6F6VFW W&Fr2VFW'&6RgVBVFW"FRFVV6&&B`VGV6FD4T276'2V&W"b&w&2FBWBFR&VwV"6W'f6W2&fFVB'FRF7G&7BFP6VFW"fW'6VW2FR44266vR6B6&R&w&2B''B66wF&R66vGFW"66&rǒ&V֖g&ƖBF2VffW'6֖FFR662B6&fFW2u$&w&f"`F&R6G&VB''B66D4T2'V2bvVV7VW"6662B6ffW'2FFPBWfVr7V6G676W2f"&F6G&VBGVG266vR6B6&R4422&fFVB&Vf&R66BgFW"66B''BBwF&R&Vf&R66@vGFW"BgFW"66B&V֖g&ƖBF0VffW'6֖FFR662FRgFW"6&R&w&2&Vv@66F6֗766VFrbF2BVBBcRFR&r6W76&Vv2BsRB''BBsBwF&RBvGFW"7GVFVG2VFW"FP442&w&2BFRGW&rFRV"&Vv7G&Fখf&FBf&2&Rf&RFRD4T2ff6R&Rw&2FFFbFBFf FVV66G&VvW22bBvfR&VV66WFVBFFRFVV6&RbF&w&FRFVV66VGVGV6F6VFW"'V2&Rw&&w&F@&fFW2WFVFVB6F6&Rf"bFW26VFV@V6W&B6FB6G&Vv&R66WFVBFFR&P&w&v&R&RF&VB''B66f"gV66FFR&w&fw2FRFVV6V&Ɩ06626VF"FW&R26&vRf"F2WFVFVBF&w&v62Ɩ֗FVBFR6G&VFR&r&w&BR6G&VFRgFW&&w&'W6r&R&fFVBf"VƖv&R6G&Vࠤ66226vVV&w&f"6G&VVFW&rw&FW2ӂ6W'2V7'G2'G2b7&gG266V6RW627v֖r7V6WfVG2G&2B&RW"v2F&fFR7VW"WW&V6RFBffW'2V&6VBW'6w&wFBgV6fRW'GW&rVf&VB62'V'6&rBVFW67F2&fW767FfbbFV6W'26VvR7GVFVG2Bv666V'2gVFR&Vv7FW&VB66W'6R2FPw&VG2vR6VFRWFVFVBW'2&w&&F&Vf&RBgFW"f"v&rf֖ƖW2WFVFVB6&R2FFFfVRFR6BFVV67&VVGvvVV'G2B66V6P&w&'V26&&FvFFRFVV67&VV66W'f72ffW&VBFR7VW"f"6G&VVFW&pw&FW2"RB֖fVRF2FfW'vVW&W2w&@&fFVB'FRVfffVFF6G&Vw&FW2BP&RW'6VB6W'G&GfVGW&W2F&Vv&f6FFVFW"7FfFW2GW&rv&Bvr&w&WBbFRvG2BFFR6W'G&FFFFWW&RBV&&WBFRGW&v&BbFRFVV67&VV66W'f76G&VVFW&rw&FW2"2VFPW6Fr&'VW7B&w&2bG2b6W&2@rv2BFWfV62FB7BƖfWFRD4T27V6G676W2f"GVG2B6G&Vf&WGb676W2&RffW&VBF&VvWBFRV"f"&F6G&VBGVG2676W2&RVBgFW&2WfVw2@vVVVG26fVVB6F2F&VvWBFRF7G&7BV&Wr&'vWB6R"&VvFvD4T06ffW'26vRFBVFFG&2BFW'2'FW'6vFw&WFW'2BG&fVf"6WFP6W'6RFW67&F2fWrW"vV"vRƖR@wwrFVV6662&rFR6VGVGV6F6VFW"6FVBBWVvVRfVB2Vg&3C3FF&Vvg&Ff"FFFf&FV6Rf6BFR6VFW"6#32SSB"f6BFR6VGVGV6F6VFW"vV vRBwwrFVV6662&rEs"FVV6vVG&Bv&6vRvVআVG2bW6VG2ǒf"VVB6V6VƖpB&WG&rF&VvF2gVFVB&w&f"gW'FW"f&F6#2SRP
