Smithfield 2020-2021 Transportation Commitment Form (Opt-in or Opt-out)
While the district continues to develop plans for the safe reopening of school in September, we are striving to comply with RIDOH directives, which require social distancing on buses. The recommendation from the Governor's office and the District is that parents, if possible, make arrangements to either drive their students to school (potentially arranging carpools) or allow them to walk or bike to school.
Per district policy, elementary children who live one walking mile or more from their home school are eligible for transportation. For secondary students, the eligibility zone is greater than two miles from the school. While buses may have picked up some students in the walk zone in the past, this will not be possible this year.
Parents of eligible students, who know they NEED a school bus, must OPT-IN for transportation for the school year. If parents/guardians do not register for bus transportation, those students will be removed from bus rosters allowing for more accurate planning.
Please submit this form FOR EACH of your children and indicate whether or not you need bus transportation.
