Back to School Info from the Transportation Department
Wednesday, August 10, 2016
The Liverpool Central School District Transportation Department is working hard to prepare for the 2016-2017 school year.
Have you moved? If so, please contact the LCSD Transportation Department as soon as possible with your new address. Any changes received after August 15 could take up to two weeks to be processed and may not be completed before the first day of school (September 8).
Bus Routes for 2016-2017
The LCSD Transportation Department will mail home letters to all LCSD families the week of August 29 notifying them of their child/children’s bus stops and route numbers. Letters also will be mailed home to families with special needs students informing them of their child/children’s morning and afternoon bus stop times and route numbers. In addition, letters will be mailed to Liverpool children attending parochial and private schools informing them of their pick-up and drop-off information, as well as letting them know where district transfer sites will be located. If you have not received your letter by September 2, call the Transportation Department at 315-453-0287.
Bus Stop Change Requests
As part of the LCSD bus routing system established during the 2010-2011 school year, students throughout the district are placed at group bus stops. Bus stops and bus routes in the district have been consolidated. A request to change a student’s bus stop must be made in writing. A “Bus Stop Change Request” form can be found on the Transportation Department Web site at www.liverpool.k12.ny.us/page/transportation. Requests for bus stop changes will not be accepted over the phone. Please allow at least three weeks for requests to be processed.
Drop Off Procedures for Kindergarten, First-Grade Students
The LCSD Transportation Department has adopted a policy to better ensure student safety. Parents/ guardians of kindergarten and first-grade students who ride the bus are asked to complete the “Who Can Meet the Bus” form that specifies the people they designate to meet the bus. District bus drivers will not let kindergarten or first-grade students off the bus unless a designated person is at the stop. Any student who cannot be dropped off will be transported to the Transportation Center to be picked up by a parent or guardian. To download the “Who Can Meet the Bus” form, visit www.liverpool.k12.ny.us/page/transportation.
Second Dismissal Routes
The Transportation Department offers second dismissal buses for students who stay after school for activities and extra help. Second dismissal routes will be available by calling the school’s main office.
