Dear Parents/Guardians,

In March of 2019 Eastchester voters amended the Eastchester School District Transportation Policy. As a result of this vote, and in an effort to create a safer environment, many of the bus routes utilized during the 2018-2019 school year have been adjusted.

Informational sessions will be held to explain the new Transportation Policy, mileage limitations and the reason for the changes that include a reduction in the number of students crossing main streets, as well as anticipated shorter ride times.  The streamlined bus routes will provide more equitable service to all the students throughout the district. We will also explain in more detail best practice concepts for school transportation safety on school buses and at bus stops.

There will be a meeting on Tuesday, August 20, 2019 at 7 PM in the Greenvale Cafeteria for Greenvale parents and Waverly parents with children who will attend Greenvale.

There will be a meeting on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at 7 PM in Anne Hutchinson Library for Anne Hutchinson parents and Waverly parents with children who will attend Anne Hutchinson.

School Superintendent Dr. Robert Glass and Transportation Supervisor Nicole Dolce will be available to answer your questions and concerns.

Specific information regarding your child’s bus route will NOT be available at this meeting, but will instead will be available on the Home Access Center on or about August 23, 2019.

We thank you in advance for your support and cooperation.

Sincerely,


Nicole Dolce

Supervisor of Transportation
