ICS 5 Latest News

Re: Extended school year yellow bus service

Dear Parents/Guardians:

For the last days of the extended school year, the Icahn Charter School 5 is required to change bus companies. We have contracted with PIONEER CHARTER (718) 931-5450 to provide yellow bus transportation. Services will begin on Monday, June 29, 2015 and will continue until the last day of school, July 10. Keep in mind the new bus looks similar to the previous bus company, but with the name Pioneer on the side of the bus. The buses will be numbered.

Please anticipate some delays during the first few days while the drivers become familiar with the stops and the students. The times listed above are estimated times. The bus driver will provide you with exact times of pick up and drop off. I recommend everyone to be at their stops as early as possible. 

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Ms. Keisha.

Sincerely yours,
Lawford M. Cunningham


Acerca de: Servicio de autobuses amarillos para el año extendido

Estimados Padres/Guardianes:

Para los últimos días del año escolar, Icahn Charter School 5 fue necesario cambiar la compañía de autobús escolar. Hemos contratado PIONEER CHARTER (718) 931-5450   para proveer transporte escolares, los servicios comenzaran el lunes 29 de junio de 2015 y continuarán hasta el último día de la clases, 10 de julio. Por favor tenga en mente que el nuevo autobús se parece mucho a los de la compañía anterior pero con el nombre Pioneer al lado. Los autobuses estarán enumerados.

Junto con esta carta encontrara los horarios de recoger y dejar a los niños (a) s y el número del autobús. Por favor revise este horario.

Por favor anticipe algunas demoras durante los primeros días mientras los conductores se  familiarizan con las paradas y los estudiantes. Los horarios listados son estimados. El chofer les puede proveer con horarios más exactos de recoger y dejar a su niño. Recomiendo que todos estén en sus paradas lo más pronto posible.

Si tiene cualquier pregunta, favor de llamar a Ms. Keisha.
