As we progress and plan for the 2020-21 school year, there are a few details regarding your child’s transportation we would like to inform you about:
October 1, 2020 we will resume taking requests for bus stop changes and/or bus assignments for daycare purposes. (See below)
Just a reminder, face masks must be worn while riding on all Sachem buses.
Additionally, please be aware that to provide transportation to all those who are entitled, students may be required to sit two in a seat at times.

Welcome to Private or Parochial School registration for Transportation
Effective immediately, we will begin accepting applications for private school transportation for the 2021-2022 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, 2021. 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 email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
