Transportation is available for students residing more than ½ mile from school. Information will be mailed in the summer and bus orientation is usually in August. For transportation to private school you must register your child with the district. For child-care after school you need to complete a form when you register or you may contact the Transportation Department. The form is due on April 1, 2019 for the following September. Please call 767-5030 if you have any question about transportation.

Note: ***If you opt for a child-care drop off to an individual on a regular basis, the location must be in the same district boundary catchment area where you live. If you are utilizing a New York State licensed daycare center such as Kids’ Port run by the Children’s Center on Main Street, or their program at Daly Elementary School, the JCC program which is housed at one of our elementary schools, forms are available in the Transportation Office of the School District. You may call the number listed above.



Class placement is decided by keeping the classes as balanced as possible considering gender, age, ethnicity, former nursery school, etc. Placement and school supply letters are mailed to parents in mid-August. If there is a concern about placement (i.e., particular children who should not be placed together) parents should contact the principal in writing in April. Children cannot be placed with friends and a request for a specific teacher is not allowed.


Medical examinations and immunization forms must be completed within one year prior to the starting date of school.  The forms should be returned to the school your child will be attending before June 7, 2019.
