Transportation Deadline for School Year 2017-2018

     In preparation for the 2017-2018 school year, the Halifax Area School District requires all transportation requests be made by July 14, 2017. All requests for changes, additions, or bus stop concerns must be submitted in writing on the appropriate Transportation Change Request form (available below or from any office). Requests via phone or email cannot be accepted without an accompanied change form.
     Any requests submitted after the deadline may not be accepted until after the conclusion of the first two weeks of school. Every effort will be made to address these written requests in mid-September, when routes have settled in and staff have determined how efficiently the bus routes are running.
     Please note, as per the District's bus policy, students may only be assigned to one permanent pick-up point and one permanent drop-off point. This means a student is permitted to have a different morning stop than his/her afternoon stop; however, the stops must be consistent, Monday through Friday (with the exception of students living in two separate resident households due to a legal shared custody agreement on file in the school office). 
     Your cooperation and understanding is greatly appreciated. Please do not hesitate to contact the Transportation Office at 717-896-3416 extension 123 with questions and/or concerns.
