Please note that due to the closure of schools pursuant to the Executive Order(s) issued by the Governor for the COVID-19 crisis and recognizing that such requests need  to be incorporated into a school district’s budget, the Department directs all public school districts to accept all parental requests for transportation to charter and nonpublic schools submitted on or before April 15, 2020.   The Department deems such Executive Order(s) be a reasonable excuse for a delay under Ed. Law 3635. Additionally, the Governor has signed an Executive Order allowing virtual notarization:

Requests for transportation to nonpublic schools for the 2020-2021 school year for residents of the Lynbrook Union Free School District must be submitted to the Lynbrook UFSD Transportation Office, 111 Atlantic Avenue, Lynbrook, NY 11563. The transportation request forms, residency affidavits and registration documentation must be postmarked no later than April 15, 2020. Documents should not be sent to the school where your child is enrolled.

A request form must be filled out every year, for every school your child is applying to, and for each child if there are siblings. In no instance can transportation be requested for a school more than 15 miles from the student’s residence. For more detailed information please click here or call 516-612-5490.
