The Valley Stream School District will meet Tuesday night to consider taking away private busing to students in grades 7 to 12 for area private and parochial schools, and instead issuing Metrocards to these students.
Although the Valley Stream Herald article mentions only area high schools being affected, I confirmed by phone with the district today that 7th and 8th graders attending Catholic elementary schools in the area would also be affected.
Malverne residents who live in the Valley Stream School District would be greatly impacted by a vote on this issue. Parent support is necessary to defeat this measure.
The meeting will take place Tuesday, March 12, at 8 p.m., in the Valley Stream Memorial Junior High School cafeteria.
