Dear Lighthouse bus families and potential bus families:
A few years ago a group of parents established a bus service for children from the Upper and Mid Cape areas. The bus is entirely funded by the parents. State law does not allow the school to subsidize the service without providing busing for all students, which is not financially possible for the school.
We are nearing the date when we need to make a final decision on next year’s bus service. You may recall a recent communication that asked for families to make a commitment by July 1st. This is a reminder that we need to hear from you by July 1st if you would like your child to ride the bus for the 2017-2018 school year.
The rates below represent using two buses at this year’s ridership numbers. If ridership is lower, we can consider using one bus, which will lower rates, potentially by a few hundred dollars. If ridership increases so that two buses are more full, rates would also decrease.
The total cost for two buses, with stops at Exits 5,6,8 and 9 for the 2017-2018 school year, will be $1500 for the school year. It is possible that time and stop details could be altered, and we will know that when we get the final ridership numbers
We have set up the following payment schedule:
$500 by July 1
$500 by August 1
$500 by September 1
If this payment schedule presents a problem for you, please contact Karen Scichilone at the school to create an individual payment plan. Unfortunately, students who do not make payments or work out a payment plan will not be allowed to ride the bus. Checks should be made out to “CCLCS Bus Group”. We also have a PayPal link from our school website. Please feel free to contact Mr. Niles or Mrs. Scichilone if you have any questions about this service.
