Metrocards are given twice a year. They are only to be used by the child who receives the card. They are not transferrable and are only good on school days.
Take good care of your child's Metrocard. Don't bend or scratch it or the card may become deactivated. Don't lend it to another person. If you get caught, MTA personnel can confiscate the card, and you could be fined. If you lose your card, notify Ms. Mason, tel. 212 678-2849 so she can deactivate your old card and issue your child a new one.
