There are many variables when dealing with transportation, so we request all parents and guardians to be patient the first week of school until bus routes and times become more established. Time delays are to be expected until adjustments can be made.

Please keep in mind that because of scheduling and the number of children transported, your child must be at the bus stop 5 minutes prior to the scheduled pick up time.

Please have your child out of the car ready to board the bus 5 minutes prior to the scheduled pick up time.

 

Important Notes:

• All bus routes in today’s newspaper are also located on the school district website www.npsd.org under the transportation tab.

If you have any questions regarding transportation, please call the Transportation Office at 570-842-7659 and select option 8.

• The published routes, stops and times many change during the school year as the transportation needs of the North Pocono School District change.

• If the need arises for your child to ride a bus other than their assigned bus, you must send a signed note with your child to the school giving the address and phone number of the place to be dropped.

The school will issue a bus pass on a space available basis if the address is another assigned drop off.

Please remember there is a chance there will not be room on the bus you request for a bus pass. If this happens, you will be notified by the school that the bus pass was not available.

• In the event that your child/children miss the bus at their stop, please do not have your child/children get out of the car behind the bus at another stop and walk or run along side the bus to board it. This manner of boarding the bus is very unsafe. The bus driver may not be able to see them and start to pull away. If one of the children were to trip and fall under the back wheels of the bus, the results would be tragic. The safety of your child is our first priority. If your child misses a bus you should provide transportation to their school.

Private/Parochial

 

The North Pocono School District requires all private and parochial students who are transported by the District to submit a request for transportation form each school year. The request form can be found on the North Pocono School District website at www.npsd.org under “resources” click “forms”.

Please submit a “Request for Private/Parochial School Transportation” form to our Transportation Office at 701 Church Street Moscow, PA 18444.

Students living in the NPSD who are attending private or parochial schools will be transported to the morning transfer point at the NP Middle School on the buses that serve the NP secondary students.

Transportation will be provided from the transfer point at the NP Middle School to the student’s respective school.

In the afternoon, students will be transported from their respective school to the afternoon transfer point at Moscow Elementary School.

There students who attend private/parochial schools will board buses and be transported home.

The NPSD is scheduled to resume classes on Monday, August 28, 2017.

Some of the private and parochial schools begin classes prior to that date. NPSD will provide transportation on those days as well as days when the NPSD is not in session and your child’s school is, with the exception of days when the NPSD is closed due to inclement weather.
