The Shamong Township Board of Education provides transportation of pupils pursuant to New Jersey State statutes and in accordance with Board Policy #3541.1 and Regulation #R3541.1. The Board of Education recognizes that transportation to and from school is required for the promotion of education. The Board is responsible to transport eligible students to and from their homes. Eligible students are those who live outside a two mile door-to-door distance from the school. The Shamong Township Board of Education also provides courtesy bussing for those students who live less than two miles from the school.
Your child is assigned to the bus stop closest to your residence. All transportation is automatically determined to be to and from home. If your child needs to be transported to and/or from a babysitter's residence or a child care facility, the request must be in writing. Please use this form to request child care/babysitting bus arrangements. These arrangements normally take 5 business days to begin. Transportation is provided for locations within Shamong Township only.
- Requests must be received at the Main Office by AUGUST 2, 2017, for the arrangements to start on the first day of school.
- Requests received 9/11/17 or later will go into effect one week after receipt of request.
- Alternate transportation arrangements are made available as a courtesy. These arrangements must be for 5 days per week and can be morning pickup only, afternoon drop off only, or both.
Residents with pupil transportation concerns, comments, or questions can contact the Business Office from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at 609-268-0316.
