Welcome to the Private or Parochial School registration for Transportation
Dear Parents / Guardians:
Effective immediately, we will begin accepting applications for private
school transportation for the 2020-2021 school year ahead of the April 1st deadline (as per NYS Law).
In an effort to streamline the process we will no longer be mailing paper applications to each household.
We are now using electronic filing for transportation applications.
Your application must be completed and submitted before April 1, 2020.
No late applications will be accepted. It is our recommendation to apply
for Transportation even if there is a chance you will not need it. You
can cancel the request for transportation if needed at a later date.
Keep in mind that an individual form needs to be completed for each
child attending a private or parochial school. If you decide to change
the school of attendance after completing the application you must
notify the Sachem Transportation Department before the April 1st
deadline, otherwise it will be processed as a late application.
If this is your child’s first time applying for transportation to a
Private or Parochial School, you will have to fill out the forms on the
link below and bring them to Central Registration Office at 51 School
Street Lake Ronkonkoma. The office is in the Samoset Middle School in
the “A” entrance.

parent portal becomes available.
