Director of Transportation
The staff of the Kingston City School District is responsible for safely and efficiently transporting students to and from schools and school activities. They handle the logistics of routing for each of our schools and for resolving transportation concerns.
Please remember that students are required to be at the bus stop five minutes prior to the scheduled bus arrival times, and that students should be orderly and respectful of other riders and the property of others.
Students should observe these rules:

Transportation to Non-Public Schools
Parents in the Kingston City School District whose children plan to attend non-public schools the following year must file a “Request for Transportation” (RFT) Form which must be submitted on or before, April 1st for the 2021-2022 School Year. (Form can be found below.)
Late requests cannot be accepted (with the exception of new students moving into the district from another district.)
Forms are available at all non-public and private schools. A new Request for Transportation Form must be completed every school year for each child and for each school. Parents are to return the Request for Transportation Forms to the schools and they will be forwarded to us before April 1st (the form is also available in a pdf format below).
If a parent is uncertain which non-public school his child will attend next year, they may submit more than one transportation request to ensure transportation will be considered. However, the parent needs to decide and the school district must be notified no later than May 15th to confirm which school the student will be attending in September.
In order to be eligible for transportation, the distance between the child’s residence and the non-public school may not exceed fifteen (15) miles. Parents who have questions about eligibility should contact the Transportation Office at 943-3050 for clarification.
Alternative Bus Stop (ABS) Request forms (daycare) for 2021-22 must be submitted with the Request for Transportation form. ABS Forms are at your school. Please note that the Alternative Bus Stop must be 5 days a week.
*If not submitted with the Request for Transportation, the ABS Request will not be accommodated.
