Transportation Guidelines

    The Massapequa Board of Education has lowered these minimum distance from School requirements as follows:

         Grade Level   Distance from School

         Kindergarten
         Grades 1-6
         Grades 7-9  
         Grades 10-12

      1/2 mile
      1 mile
      1 mile
      1-1/2 miles
     

TRANSPORTATION PARENT/GUARDIAN EMAILS

  • Parent/Guardian Bus Emails: Our bus email communication tool, RoutefinderGo, is used to inform parents/guardians of students on regularly scheduled bus routes with important announcements and delays expected to be over fifteen minutes. If a student attends MSD schools, the tool syncs with email information in our Student Management System, PowerSchool, and our bus route numbers in Transfinder. If a student attends a private/parochial school, our system syncs with email information we have on file and our bus route numbers in Transfinder. If you need to update email information, please contact your school’s General Office and ask to speak with the building registrar (MSD Students) or our Transportation Department (Private/Parochial Students). If you would like to be removed from bus email communications, please contact our Transportation Department at transportation@msd.k12.ny.us or 516.308.5065.

    Parent Support: Check your spam/junk folder and add no-reply@msd.k12.ny.us to your safe-senders list. In addition, contact your school's registrar to check the email address we have on file in PowerSchool (MSD Students) or the Transportation Department (Private/Parochial Students). If correct, it is possible your provider is blocking or delaying emails from the RoutefinderGo system. If blocked, please contact your provider to share the issue with your email address or contact the building registrar to update your email address to a different provider. 


Students Attending Private or Parochial School

  • The deadline for submitting a Private/Parochial School Application for Transportation was Monday, April 1, 2019.  

    Should you still need to apply, please contact the Massapequa School District Transportation Department at 516-308-5065 for assistance.


Transportation Request for Childcare Location


Bus Stop Changes

  • Requests for bus stop changes must be submitted in writing to the Transportation Office.


Bus Passes

  • Each child eligible for bus transportation will be issued a bus pass and must present it to the driver upon boarding. If a pass is lost, a duplicate may be issued through the school's general office for a charge of $2.50. If a pass becomes worn or mutilated through normal use, it will be replaced free of charge upon presentation of the old pass. Inappropriate behavior while on a school bus or improper use of the bus pass may result in the loss of bus pass privileges. More information will be provided when the bus pass is issued.
