The NYC Department of Education is now offering coverage of return trip costs (from school in the morning and to school in the afternoon) for parents who demonstrate extenuating circumstances such as financial hardship or transportation difficulty. Coverage of return trip costs can apply to either mileage (for parents driving a child to school) or car services (for parents accompanying a child to school).
If this applies to you, please call your unit coordinator. The school will need to approve this and send the information to the NYC DOE.
Let’s hope for an early end to the bus strike.
