Make sure that you fill out a request for each child that you want to be considered for a building to building request, even if you put their names in the “siblings” box for one of your children. The siblings box helps us cross-connect families, but we need a request for each child.
As a reminder, transportation will not be provided for building to building transfer students attending a district school outside of their home school attendance boundary. However, students approved for a building to building transfer may complete an Alternative Transportation Form http://www.westcler.org/docs/district/depts/22/TransportationDocs/WC%20transportation%20form%202017.pdf requesting transportation from an approved bus stop within the elementary attendance area for which the request was approved.
