Dear Parent / Guardian:
All students who use school bus transportation during the 2015 - 2016 school year, either to or from their home address, will automatically be registered to be transported for the 2016 – 2017 school year. No action is required on your part.
A Transportation Request Form needs to be filled out only if any of the following conditions apply:
- Students that require transportation to a Swansea address that differs from the student’s home address (i.e. babysitter’s or Grandparent’s house)
- Students who were not transported by the school department during the 2015 - 2016 school year.
- Address chance since the last school year
- New or transferred students

The persons affected are those who received special education services in Swansea and terminated services during the 2008-2009 school years via graduation, relocation, team recommendation, etc. If you wish to receive the materials, please come in to the Student Services Office, One Gardners Neck Road, Swansea, any time from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm, Monday – Friday. A picture I.D. matching the guardian of record or student, if age 18 or older, will be required. Unclaimed records will be destroyed on or around August 11, 2016.
