A Private School Experience in a Public School Setting


School Bus Safety

The M&J Bus Company provides the transportation of students. Their number is 860-434-1052. Please read their school bus safety notice.

It is the goal of the Lyme/Old Lyme Board of Education to establish for the Lyme/Old Lyme Public Schools an appropriate transportation system which will enable all qualified children of school age to be transported to the schools as required. School bus transportation is for students only.

The Superintendent of Lyme-Old Lyme Public Schools shall be responsible for the school transportation system and shall develop and administer it to:

1. provide maximum safety for all students of Lyme/Old Lyme Public Schools;
2. supplement and reinforce desirable student behavior patterns;
3. assist handicapped students appropriately; and
4. enrich the instructional program through carefully planned field trips recommended by staff members. 

The transportation system shall be planned and operated in compliance with the General Statutes of the State of Connecticut and all regulations of the State Department of Education and the State Department of Motor Vehicles regarding the operation of school buses and motor vehicles.

Transportation by private carrier or through district owned or contracted buses shall be provided at the discretion of the Lyme/Old Lyme Board of Education.
