Nonpublic Transportation Information & Request Form

Information for Nonpublic Transportation:

If your child requires transportation to a non-public school, transportation will be provided in accordance with NYS Education Law.  A Nonpublic Transportation Request must be submitted to the District Transportation Office by April 1st for the upcoming school year.  Transportation will be provided to the nonpublic school of choice, up to the statutory 15-mile limit within the mileage eligibility requirements.  Students in grades K-5 must live more than .75 of a mile and students in grades 6-12 must live more than 1.5 miles from their school of attendance.  If the school is undecided at the time of application, families should submit requests for each possible school choice.  School choice must be given to the transportation department via email (transportation@herricks.org) by April 1st each year or within five (5) days of the school's admission decision (verified with letter).

All students must be registered with the District to receive services.  Unregistered applicants can register by contacting the District's Registrar at (516) 305-8987 or complete the registration form for non-public school students found on this webpage.  Families who have not previously registered for non-public school services (transportation, books) will need to complete the registration process for non-public students.

Transportation for non-public school students will be provided in accordance with the Herricks UFSD public school calendar during the 2023-2024 school year. Transportation will not be provided when Herricks public schools are closed as was stated on the application for services. 

Transportation will not be provided for non-public school students on the following dates during the 2024-2025 school year: 09/02/2024, 10/14/2024, 11/11/2024, 11/28/2024, 11/29/2024, 12/25/2024, 01/01/2025, 02/17/2025, 05/26/2025, 06/19/2025.
