FAQ'S RELATED TO TRANSPORTATION & PICKUP/DROP OFF


Q: WHAT CAN YOU SHARE ABOUT KINDERGARTEN TRANSPORTATION

A: Bus transportation is provided for all students that live over 1.5 miles from the school. If you live under 1.5 miles and wish to utilize the transportation to and from the school there is a fee associated with this and is referred to as pay-to-ride. Details of bus routes, pickup, and drop off times, as well as bus safety, are covered at Bus Orientation in August each year. Continue to check Events for further details about Bus Orientation.


Q: WHEN DO KINDERGARTEN FAMILIES GET INFORMATION ABOUT SCHOOL BUS STOPS AND PICK UP TIMES?

A: This information is made available to Kindergarten families after August 1st each year.


 

Q: WHAT IS BUS ORIENTATION?

A: Bus Orientation will be held in August. Rules of riding the bus, policies for drop-off and pick-up, bus safety and bus routes will be presented by Lucini Bus Lines in collaboration with Mrs. Letendre. The afternoon is capped off with a bus ride for everyone. Please consider attending this event. Lots of students and even parents have anxiety about riding the bus. This event is designed to address some of those concerns. You may park anywhere, but parking behind the school will bring you closest to the Cafeteria.

 

Q: WHAT IF I DO NOT WANT MY CHILD TO TAKE THE BUS?

A: You may drop-off and pick-up your child at your discretion. You may do this regularly or sporadically. Please know that morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up are very crowded and congested at school simply because we have such a large community.

 

Q: WHAT IS THE PROCESS TO DROP OFF A STUDENT FOR KINDERGARTEN?

A: Drop-off begins at 8:55 am. Please do not drop-off your child prior to that time. In the morning, please follow the traffic into the school and drop-off your child at the horseshoe for the rolling drop-off. Remember--school starts at 9:05 am; any arrival after this point will be marked as tardy.

 

Q: CAN I WALK MY CHILD INTO THE SCHOOL?

A: You can walk your child into the school, although it may be difficult to find parking during the morning drop-off which is why the rolling drop-off works so well. If you're nervous about this process, feel free to walk your child into the school until you and/or your child feel more comfortable with how everything works. 

 

Q: WHAT IS THE PICK-UP PROCESS FOR A KINDERGARTEN STUDENT?

A: Pick-up starts promptly at 3:20 pm. Parents/guardians are asked to park and come to the front of the school gymnasium doors. When the doors open, be prepared with a license to sign your child out. If someone else is picking up your child, please make sure to send in a note the day of. All cars must be gone by 3:25 pm to begin the departure of the buses. If your child can take the bus, please consider it as it is a very safe way considering all of our traffic concerns.
