Middle School Alternate Transportation Requests
Alternate transportation forms are only granted for athletes who have extenuating circumstances such as religious (holidays), medical, or the student-athlete needs to return the middle school for a Roslyn school event (ex. concert or science fair.)
The athletic department understands that this may cause scheduling difficulties, however, the coaches and athletic director are trying to stress to our athletes the importance of team cohesion. Although it may be a small part, riding the bus as a team increases unity and limits some player's decision to selectively be part of the team.
Riding the bus allows the coach to discuss team goals and strategy and is also a place where the coach may review the game with players to motivate them, congratulate them, or console them. This time is special to athletes and their coach and we are trying to create an atmosphere with little interruption.
Requests must be made to the district athletic director, Dr. Brostowski, by contacting the high school physical education and athletic office at 516-801-5160. All requests must be made at least 24 hours prior to the contest. Only religious (holiday), medical, or school related functions will be considered. Events such as other team practices, birthday parties, or other social events will not be approved.
