June 9, 2020 Transportation Update: Subscription Busing Suspended for 2020-2021 School Year

Essex Regional Educational Services Commission (ERESC), the company that coordinates the North Caldwell Board of Education's student transportation, has informed us that they will not be able to provide Subscription Busing for the 2020-2021 School Year due to the shutdown of their transportation department in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The North Caldwell Board of Education will continue to provide busing to those children who we are required to bus by law, without charge.  

We are disappointed by this development. As we reported at our last meeting, we worked hard to maintain subscription busing as an option. When we received this update from ERESC, we explored other companies to coordinate our subscription busing program, but were not able to find a suitable alternative.

We are doing everything possible to ensure that drop off and dismissal runs smoothly at both schools including:

  • Supporting Tiny Treasures to run programs in both schools
  • Looking into earlier drop-off times at both schools
  • Working with local police to manage longer car lines and additional walkers  

We thank the North Caldwell community for your understanding. We know this will be a hardship for many families.
