In addition to the above dates, trips will not be scheduled on any days that NYC public schools are closed.
When planning trips, please remember all buses must return to the school no later than 1:30 p.m. OPT will not provide round-trip yellow bus service for activities likely to delay return to school past 1:30 p.m. (including sporting events, Madison Square Garden, the Circus, the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island, Radio City Music Hall, World Marina, Marco Polo/Spirit Cruises, Staten Island Ferry and Circle Line Tours). Schools may choose one-way OPT yellow bus service with other arrangements for the return trip. For those students who use buses only for field trips, classroom instruction covering the content of bus safety drills may be provided as an alternative to formal school bus drills in compliance with Section 3623 of the State Education Department and Revised Section 156.3(h) of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education.
