The Amherst Schools Board Office summer hours are 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday until August 19.
Requests for changes in student transportation must be submitted prior to Friday, July 8, 2013. A form is available at student buildings; the Board office and the Transportation department. The form must be completed thoroughly and signed by the Principal and the transportation Supervisor before it will be effective. Parents will be notified once approval has been given and paperwork has been processed. Requests can take up to two (2) weeks to approve. Forms must be submitted each new school year.
These requests in students transportation include transportation to and from Day Care facilities (if feasible for the Transportation Dept) or babysitters. The Transportation department does not transport students for play dates, etc.
One (1) alternate stop or address (besides the student’s home address) is acceptable. The Transportation Department cannot transport students to more than 1 (one) stop or alternate address. The alternate stop or address must be for 5 days/week for the entire school year. If a change needs to be made after the original change is made and approved, another form will need to be submitted and approved before the change becomes effective.
Requests for students to be picked up at one location in the AM and a different location in the PM is acceptable. However, one of these locations needs to be the students “home resident stop”.
Emergency requests can be handled by calling the Transportation Department or the student’s school. Please do not put your child on a bus without the approval from the Transportation department. Please contact the school or the Transportation Department to discuss the emergency situation.
Delays or late submissions of forms will be handled as soon as possible; however, parents will be responsible to transport their students until the transportation department has time to process your request. Again, please note that requests can take up to two (2) weeks to process.
For questions and more information, please contact your school or Cyndi Kramer, Transportation Supervisor at 988-2633.

The Amherst Exempted Village Schools have partnered with Innisbrook School Supplies to provide parents with the option of purchasing next year's supply lists in a "Back-To-School" Pack that will be shipped directly to your home in August. You certainly don't have to purchase the "Back-To-School" Pack from Innisbrook if you enjoy shopping with your child over the summer but this may be a convenient option for some of you. Below are the supply lists for Powers, Harris and Nord and the ordering directions for each building if you are interested in the Innisbrook option. If you have any questions or need any assistance, please email Michael Molnar, Executive Director of Educational Services.
Details of the Governor's education funding plan were released last week. Under the proposal, the Amherst Schools would receive no increase in funding for the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 school years. We will keep the community updated as the proposal works its way through the legislative process over the next three or four months.
