Starting with the 2018-2019 school year, elementary children will attend a building based on their grade level, rather than their home address. 
Follow along with your child to see how transportation will work in 2018-19
  • Elementary siblings at the same house will ride the same bus together (unless handicap accessible transportation is needed). The bus will drop each child off at the correct building.     
  • Students in any elementary walk zone will walk to their neighborhood school at 8:35am and get on a bus at 8:40 for a short ride to their school as the buses rotate buildings (or stay if that is their assigned school).
The Basics
  • This family does not live in a walk zone for any school.
  • They have elementary age children attending 3 different buildings.
  • They will all ride the same bus together, each child staying on the bus till it arrives at their school.
Family A
  • This family lives in a walk zone for a neighhood school, but not for the school their child is attending.
  • This student will walk to the neighborhood school at 8:35 and get on a bus at 8:40 a.m. for a short ride to their  school.
Family B
  • This family prefers to drop-off and pick-up their children.
  • There will be staggered dismissal times to allow parents enough time to pick-up at multiple buildings if necessary.
Family C
  • This family has a Kindergarten student and a 3rd grade student in a bus zone  
  • They let the 3rd grader ride the bus, but choose to drive the Kindergarten child to school themselves.
Family D
  • This family lives in a bus zone and has a 2nd grade student and a student in a wheelchair.  
  • They have the 2nd grader ride a standard bus, and our Transportation Department can arrange for separate wheelchair accessible transportation for their other child.
Family E
What do kids do while the buses rotate?
  • Every elementary building offers breakfast.  
  • There will be planned supervision and activities.
  • The YMCA may be offering their before and after school program for parents who need extra day-care help.
What happens after school lets out?
  • The entire Carousel process will completely reverse.  
  • We will have a pick-up and bus window from 3:30 to 3:55 to allow for bus rotation, and for parents who may be picking up children at different buildings.
