Important Daycare Busing Information

Families who reside in the Central Dauphin School District with child/children who ride the bus to/from Holy Name of Jesus School must complete a “Child Care Provider Request” form EVERY YEAR if the child will be traveling to/from a daycare provider. 

Daycare accommodations that include busing do not carry over from one school year to the next; therefore, families who will require day care busing again for the 2018-2019 school year must submit a new form by the end of this school year. 
If daycare arrangements change during the school year, please fill out a
NEW form.
  To obtain this form, contact the Holy Name of Jesus School Office at 717-657-1704, or use the link provided below. Forms should be returned to the HNJ School Office.
