Important: Bus schedules are not available on this website. Each student will receive a bus pass indicating transportation status - bus stop, time of pick-up and return. On the first day of school the student should present this pass to the driver of the bus. Students may only ride on the bus assigned to them.
If you have not received this information by September 1, please contact Monticello School Bus Garage at 845-794-8570 or 845-794-2120. Please check the schedules carefully. Requests for changes, individual problems, or transportation questions should be sent to the Transportation Department in writing by filling out a Transportation Comment Form.
Responsibility for students using buses rests with parents until student actually boards bus or exits bus at end of day.
Acts of misconduct may lead to student's temporary suspension from all transportation privileges.
Following items not allowed on bus:
Late buses run every day. The buses depart from the middle school and high school at 4:30 p.m.
The bus is available for all middle and high school students. Principals and/or coaches will notify your son/daughter of specific drop-off points.
Students must have a pass issued by a teacher or administrator to board a late bus.
If your child is the recipient of any verbal or physical abuse, please report the incident immediately to your school principal. If possible, include bus number, bus driver's name, and time of day. The principal will then conduct a follow up investigation and report back to the parent the disposition of the incident.
