Transportation

Transportation arrangements vary family-to-family at School of the Holy Child. The school day begins at 8:00 a.m. We recommend that students are dropped off by 7:50 a.m. each day. This enables girls to have time for morning interactions with classmates and teachers, and prepare for the school day. Students are dismissed at 3:00 p.m.

Busing available from local school districts: Free transportation is provided by many school districts in New York State. In order to qualify in districts that provide busing, you must live within fifteen miles of the school, door-to-door. Since each district sets its own guidelines, please contact your local school district transportation office to determine: if your district provides busing and if you are eligible. Parents must apply to the school district for transportation on or before the April 1 deadline. If a family moves into a district after the April 1 deadline, they must contact their respective district immediately and apply for transportation within thirty days.
