Staten Island Student Carpools
Our Parent Coordinator, Ms. Ganbaatar, has taken on the task of trying to help our Staten Island families coordinate one or more carpools. In order to proceed, you'd need to call her at 718-266-0814x1332 or better yet, email her at dganbaatar@schools.nyc.gov with your child's name, your name, phone contact information, email, and address. Hopefully,s we're successful helping those families with some of the longest and most expensive commutes. Perhaps we can extend this further with others down the road.
