The daily transportation of children to and from school is the perfect opportunity to establish expectations for good conduct, responsible citizenship, and to teach and enforce the rules of safety. The William Floyd School District urges all parents to escort their children to and from bus stops in order to ensure a safe, orderly climate before and after school. Parents are partners in the educational process. Self-control and good manners must begin at home and can only foster a productive school environment.
As a reminder, you may visit our website at www.wfsd.k12.ny.us and click on the transportation information link to find everything you will need to know about student, parent and district roles and responsibilities with respect to the transportation of our children. You will also be able to reference the district’s transportation policy and have a list of important contact numbers handy. If you do not have access to the Internet, please contact our transportation depart-ment at (631) 874-1305 or your specific school and copies will be sent to you. If you get voicemail, please leave a mes-sage with your child’s full first and last name and address.
It is important to remember that parents, children, bus drivers and the district are all responsible in maintaining high standards of conduct and safety on school buses. For the 2016-2017 school year, East End Bus Lines will be providing ALL of the district’s transportation needs including to and from district buildings AND the district’s special education students to and from placements which are outside of the district. School buses may utilize video cameras to ensure the continued safety of our students.
Please take the time to review the information contained on the transportation section of the district website and reinforce these important guidelines with your children. We cannot stress enough the importance of these rules and our mutual responsibility for enforcing them in an effort to not only keep your child safe, but to protect all students riding the school bus. Keep in mind that students with various temporary injuries (including casts, slings, etc.) will continue to be transported on their regular bus.
Should you have any specific transportation questions regarding bus numbers, bus stops, etc., please contact the transportation office at (631) 874-1305. Thank you for your ongoing cooperation in this important matter.2016-transportation
