If you need to have your child transported to an address other than his or her home address, a Special Transportation Request Form (see Quick links) must be filled out every year.  These forms are not carried over from year to year.

Tolland if it is for the entire school year.


This alternate transportation will be provided in the a.m. or the p.m. or both a.m. and p.m.

2.For special transportation to a babysitter/daycare the student will be picked up or dropped off if:

            a. it is at the same location weekly for the entire school year;

            b.the stop is located on an established destination route; or

            c. if the required rerouting does not increase the cost of transportation to the District.
