We encourage families to utilize our school bus/van for transportation. In order to maintain safety and security for all, we need to limit the amount of car traffic going up and down from the front gate to the school. For this reason, if you are driving, please do your best to carpool from the front gate and share rides up the hill. There is ample parking near the front gate, at the bottom of the hill, in front of Peace and Cake Bakery. Once at the school parking lot, drivers may not go back down the farm hill until the bus has arrived at school. This is imperative to the safety of everyone using the road. Please note that masks are required when utilizing school transportation.

In the event that parents are not present at bus stops for pick up, child will remain on bus and will return to school (mid-day route) or will stay on bus until Talanguera bus stop (afternoon route) where they will be supervised by bus driver until parent arrives. Late pickup fines will be assessed at school director’s discretion.
