IMPORTANT PROPOSED CHANGE IN STUDENT PM DROP OFF REQUIREMENTS

At the July 2017 Hamilton Township Board of Education meeting, the Board approved a new Transportation Policy 8605 – Requirements to Meet Students at Bus Stop. This policy provides for the following:

  • All preschool, kindergarten, first grade, and second grade students must be met at the bus stop by a person who will be taking responsibility for that student as they depart the bus in the afternoon.
  • Any person who will be taking responsibility for the student must be age 12 or older.
  • The parent/guardian of any student in grades three through eight who rides a special needs van may request that their student not be dropped off without a responsible person meeting them by contacting the Transportation Department.

The Hamilton Township School District is committed to providing safe and efficient school bus transportation to its students. The district has a long tradition of providing this service safely to all students who are eligible under New Jersey State laws, rules, and regulations. This policy outlines the services the school district provides and explains the district’s compliance with all applicable laws and rules pertaining to school bus transportation. The Hamilton Township School District does not operate its own buses but is a member of the Greater Egg Harbor Regional Transportation Consortium. The Consortium is responsible for determining the most efficient and economical way to transport our 3,300 Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8 student population to the three District Schools as well as various special education locations and qualified Non-Public, Choice, and Charter schools.

Riding a bus to and from school in the Hamilton Township School District is a PRIVILEGE not a right.

All students must observe good conduct, courtesy, cooperation, and respect for the authority of the bus driver.

Many Transportation questions will be answered by reviewing the Hamilton Township School District School Bus Transportation Handbook.
