Metrocards
Students will receive the following levels of Metro cards based on the distance that they live from the school. These criteria are set by the Office of Pupil Transportation. If you live:
1½ or more miles from the school….full fare Metro card
½ or more, but less than 1½ miles from the school….half fare Metro card
Less than ½ mile from the school….not entitled to Metro card
Students may pick up Metro cards during their lunch period. Students must show their program card and school ID.

Lost or Stolen Metrocards
Students are issued one Metrocard at the beginning of each term. If the card is lost or destroyed, there is a waiting period of 5 to 7 school days before a new card can be issued. If the card is lost or destroyed for the second time or more, there is a waiting period of 10 days before a new card can be issued. Students will be responsible for their own transportation fares during this time. Students must report lost cards in the Metrocard Office, in room B74 and they will be required to show their school I.D. and their program card.
