**IMPORTANT: Regarding Transportation** Below you will find the new process for submitting an alternate PM request. Please read carefully as the process has been updated and is now effective. NOTE – the google form is designed so only parents can access not schools (public) Families must Submit New Alternate Afternoon Drop-Off Forms for Curb-to-School Students Families who need an alternate afternoon bus drop-off arrangement for the 2021-22 school year must submit a new request form. Request Form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd8kVtjAspzELkfBm0ULVVFFmHIwFBsoe4KD6Gln-SjaCr8NA/viewform The DOE will not roll over alternate afternoon drop-offs from one school year to the next so families must submit one on a yearly basis. The deadline for busing arrangements to be in place for September 13, is August 3. Submissions after August 3 will be considered for start dates on a rolling basis. As a reminder, schools cannot request alternate drop-off forms on behalf of families and these alternate drop-offs are not guaranteed. Thank You.
