The Transportation Regulations and the Policy adopted by the Board of Education should be stressed to the students not only for their safety but to protect the lives of all students riding the school bus.
Help your student(s) to be on time at the bus stop.
Do not ask the driver to stop at places other than the designated stop.
Assume responsibility in training your child to cooperate with the school bus driver
Insist on correct behavior in waiting for and riding the school bus
Accompany very young students to the bus stop each morning and meet the bus in the afternoon.
Cooperate with school officials in discharging discipline requirements in support of the Transportation Safety Program. Parental attitude in this matter is extremely important.
NOTE -- Students are not allowed to change their bus. When your child is not going to take the bus home, please notify the school. Parents should remind their children that they should not cross roads in order to get the bus until such time as the bus arrives, the red blinking lights are flashing, and the traffic is stopped, so that the driver can watch the students safely cross the street.
If your child will be attending either the Sayreville Middle School or Sayreville High School for the 2023-2024 School Year and reside within the non-eligible zone for transportation.
The Sayreville Board of Education will be offering subscription busing for the 2023-2024 school year for middle and high school students whose transportation is non-mandated. Non-mandated transportation applies to 6th through 8th grade students who live less than two miles (2.0) from the middle school, and 9th through 12th grade students who live less than two-and-a-half (2.5) miles from the high school as per N.J.S.A. 18A:39-1 and specified under the criteria of N.J.A.C. 6A:27-1.4. ”Distance shall be measured using the shortest route along public roadways or public walkways between the entrance of the student’s residence nearest the public roadway or public walkway and the nearest public entrance of the school the student attends”.
Families who wish to participate in the subscription busing program must be currently registered in the district prior to applying.
Subscription busing applications will not be processed unless all fees and fines (ex. Food service account balances, book fines, Chromebook fines, etc.) are paid in full by June 30th.
All applications are to be submitted by June 30, 2023.Applications will be reviewed, and seats will be granted based on the distance from Home to School, giving priority to those that live furthest from the school. Please note that this is NOT door-to-door service. Bus stops will be centrally located for all students and students will be assigned to the stop closest to their home. No changes or requests for additional stops will be accepted.
The cost for subscription busing is $550.00/per student, however, no fee is required for students eligible for free/reduced meals based on their free/reduced meal application for the 2023-2024 school year. You will be notified via email by July 15, 2023, if your student has been assigned a seat.
