Displaced Babylon Students Will Receive Busing

Students moved by Sandy in the Babylon School District will be eligible for busing when school resumes.

The Babylon School District has announced students displaced by Hurricane Sandy living in the transportation zone will receive busing to and from district schools.

Superintendent Richard Rozakis announced the district's decision by letter and on the school district's website.

"Recovery is a slow and frustrating process, but I know that the people of Babylon are strong and resilient and will get through this together," Rozakis wrote. "I eagerly await the opportunity to welcome your children back to school this Wednesday."

Students living in temporary housing in a location that qualifies already for busing or outside the district will be eligible for busing by the Babylon School District. Families housing students in locations that already receive busing will also be eligible for the new students to receive transportation.

If these scenarios apply to a student with you, Rozakis asks you visit the school district's website and click on the tab marked "transport@babylon" under Quick Links, fill out the form and email it to transport@babylonufsd.org or return it to the Transportation Office at the Babylon Junior-Senior High School.

"As we plan to re-open our schools on Wednesday, November 7th, I want to make sure that every child who deserves transportation to school will be accommodated," Rozakis wrote.
