4/18/19 Memo Re: Upcoming Transportation Issues

Re: Transportation Issues for Several Upcoming Games




I am writing to you to inform you about some issues regarding transportation to and from some upcoming away games. 


On the following dates, we were only able to secure one Rockaway Borough School Bus: 


April 29 to Boonton

May 8 to Mt. Arlington

May 14 to Morris Plains


Both teams are unable to fit in our buses at the same time.  Therefore, the bus will have to make double trips to accommodate both teams. Departing from TJ prior to the games, we will be leaving slightly earlier than usual to accommodate the double run.  Due to the delay, please expect the games to start slightly later than usual.  On the return trips, softball will be picked up FIRST, then baseball. This may mean later than usual return times back to TJ.


Please note that you are able to pick your child up from the game by sending an email to (on the day of the game) and then signing out your child with the appropriate coach.  Carpooling is also acceptable but must be set up by parents.  If you plan on carpooling, please state those intentions in the email. If you pick your child up from the game on those dates, that would help us greatly and possibly allow us to make one return trip home, thus speeding up this process.


If we are able to secure a large bus, I will send updates on Remind and post to Facebook and on the website.


Thank you for understanding.  Please let me know if you have any questions.


Have a wonderful Spring Break!
