Change of Transportation Request



Per GCS and Summerfield Elementary rules, parents MUST send in a Request for Change in Transportation note when there is a change in the normal routine of how the child goes home from school.  If a written note, with a signature is submitted, your child will be sent home by his/her regular mode of transportation.  Bus notes can be sent in to the school on paper or by fax (336-643-8447).  All notes must have a parent/guardian signature and can be sent through your child’s teacher. 


Change of Transportation requests MUST be sent when your child is:


  • Going home with another student, either by private transportation or by school bus (even if it is the same bus normally ridden, but your child is getting off at a different stop).

  • Going home via a different method from their daily routine.

  • Changing their daily routine for going home.


Change of Transportation Requests should include ALL of the following information:


  • Full Name of Your Student

  • Student’s teacher and grade

  • Date the change is occurring

  • Mode of transportation to be used that day (if on a bus, include the bus number)

  • Full name of student the child is going home with

  • Contact information for parent making the request


Transportation change notes are collected by the student’s teacher and submitted to the office.  The office staff or a parent volunteer matches and signs them as approved.  The approved notes are then given back to each student’s teacher and if applicable, the bus driver.  A photocopy of the note is maintained in the office.  It is important that your child turns in any Change of Transportation as soon as they get to school in order to facilitate this process.


For your convenience, the following note may be completed and used.
