Request for Bus Stop Change

Note: Bus stops are normally changed for safety reasons only. We do not change stops based on the
proximity of the stop to your residence, the parents ability to see their child at the stop, the fact that the bus passes your house to get to the stop, the bus stops at a stop sign close to your house, the lack of a
sidewalk, or that it may be dark outside.

As always, we do our best to accommodate the needs of all students while maintaining the highest level of safety. A bus stop change request form must be completed for any request to change a bus stop. Please return the completed form to East Lyme Public Schools, PO Box 220, East Lyme CT 06333. Once the completed request has been received, it will be reviewed and you will be notified of a decision. Any changes that are implemented will take 72 hours to take effect.

Parent Responsibilities: Parents are responsible for the safety and supervision of their children from the
time the children leave home in the morning until they board the bus, and at the end of the day from the
time their children depart the bus until they arrive home.

UNLESS WRITTEN NOTIFICATION OF A 2017-18 DAY CARE PROVIDER IS RECEIVED
ON OR BEFORE AUGUST 23, 2017, ALL ELEMENTARY STUDENTS WILL BE
TRANSPORTED TO/FROM BUS STOPS BASED ON THEIR RESIDENCE.
