    Student Transportation Policy
     

    Any bus complaints or questions should be referred to the coordinator at 424-6210. Questions regarding bus stop times or location of a bus stop should be directed to Student Transportation of America dispatch at 424-7880. Please see your child's Parent/Student Handbook for complete details.

    The Merrimack School Board has adopted the following policy concerning bus stops:

    • Pupils shall be expected to board their assigned school bus at the authorized and designated stops which serve their residence. It is expressly understood that any efforts undertaken by a parent/guardian allowing their child(ren) to board their assigned bus at another stop along the same route is done wholly at their own risk with respect to the safety interests of themselves, their child(ren), and that of others assigned to any alternate stop along the same bus route, and that neither the Merrimack School District nor the transportation company can be responsible for any resultant consequences thereof.

    • In cases of hardship, the transportation coordinator will review, evaluate, and decide upon requested bus route changes on an individual basis. An alternate bus route will be recommended only if space is available. If the transportation coordinator does not approve a parental request to modify a bus stop or route, the decision may be appealed in writing to the School Bus Stop Committee. Members of the School Bus Stop Committee include a school board member, the transportation coordinator, and the Business Administrator.

    If any parent or guardian needs to request a bus stop change under this policy, s/he is requested to write as soon as possible to the Transportation Coordinator, Office of the Superintendent of Schools, 36 McElwain Street, Merrimack, NH 03054. Any bus complaints or questions should be referred to the coordinator at 424-6210. Questions regarding bus stop times or location of a bus stop should be directed to Student Transportation of America dispatch at 424-7880.
