BERNARDS TWP. - It's not that uncommon for residents to move up, down, or around town in Basking Ridge. But once you've filled out those dozens change of address forms, make sure to submit one more _ to the township school system.
Along with making sure any mail may get to the right address, the change of address form will let the school's transportation department know if they must reassign a bus seat to your child.
The change of residence may also determine if you are eligible for free busing or - most important - whether your child even will be in the same school.
Same elementary school
Students in kindergarten through grade four are assigned to one of the township's four elementary schools based on where they are living.
The township's four elementary schools include Oak Street, Liberty Corner, Cedar Hill and Mount Prospect Elementary School in The Hills section.
The change of address form to fill out for the school district is online on the Bernards Board of Education website.
