Information on School Bussing

Good afternoon I.S. 5 families.

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. We wanted to take this opportunity to share the following information that has been provided by NYCDOE Transportation for the upcoming school year.

School busing will begin on Thursday, October 1st for students who have opted for In-Person Blended Learning. Bus pick up and drop off times and locations for the 2020-2021 are listed below. Please know that these times will be adjusted to align to school’s actual session times over the course of the Fall. Families should register for a NYCSA account in order to receive their child’s transportation assignments.

Please be sure that your child only boards the bus on days that they are scheduled to be in attendance based on their In-person Blended Learning schedule. Please be advised that students who arrive to school on non-scheduled days via the school bus service will be brought to a designated area in the school. The school will notify the student’s parent/guardian to come and pick them up from the building.

Students who have opted for remote learning will not be provided with school bus service. Families who opt back into blended learning for the second quarter will need to contact the school and OPT to request transportation.

Please be reminded, that prior to boarding the bus and entering the school building, it is important that families conduct the DOE Health screening for their child’s health. OPT has shared that they will be taking the proper protocols and measures to ensure our child’s safety. Students will be required to wear a mask on the bus and adhere to all CDC and DOH safety regulations.

We will be emailing students nycstudents.net accounts with further busing information that will include their assigned bus stops, times and locations.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Ms. Koenig, Assistant Principal at CKoenig2@schools.nyc.gov or 718-205-6788.

Thank you for your patience and we look forward to a safe and enjoyable school year.

Regards,

Ms. Nepogoda Ms. Koenig
