Transportation

 

Students are typically transported to and from the school by a family member. The school allows local bus services and daycares to pick up and drop off children. Additionally, families are encouraged to carpool. To coordinate carpooling arrangement, please click here. The school seeks to ensure that transportation is not a barrier for any family in our service area. If you need assistance with transportation, please contact the school office.

Garrett’s Law

 

Garrett’s law was enacted in 2004.  It mandates schools provide parents and guardians with information about meningococcal meningitis and influenza and the vaccines that protect against these diseases. The law was expanded in 2007 to mandate that information also be provided about human papillomavirus (HPV) and the vaccines available to protect against HPV.

The following materials are available to support this effort. Additional materials are available at each of the disease specific pages.
