Questions about Bus Transportation


Bus: Buses arrive in the parking loop off of First Parish Road and are unloaded by staff at 8:40 a.m.

Car: Parents may drop off their child by using the Vinal Avenue side of the building no earlier than 8:40 a.m. in the first car lane closest to the building. Watch staff for directions. Children should exit the vehicle from the passenger side doors. Pull all the way up and drop off quickly to keep the line moving.

Walkers and Bike Riders: Our crossing guard assists students who cross First Parish Road. Walkers and bike riders enter the school at the patio entrance by the cafeteria and gym. Bike racks are provided at the patio entrance.


Bus: Students are dismissed from their classrooms to the gymnasium to board their bus. Students may not ride a different bus or get off at another stop on the route. If students want to go to a friend’s house, they must bring a note and be dismissed as a walker or car rider.

Car: Vehicles line up in the lane closest to the front entrance on Vinal Avenue. A staff member will take names and call your students to the front of the line. It is important to stay in your vehicle and have the children buckle in quickly to ensure the line moves along. 

  • Car riders are dismissed alphabetically in the library or art room before being called to their vehicle.  
  • This keeps siblings together in one place and makes for a more efficient and safe exit from the school.

Walkers and Bike Riders: Walkers and bike riders are dismissed at the patio entrance at 3:25 p.m. Students may walk home or meet their family at the patio entrance. Our crossing guard assists students who cross First Parish Road. 

Changes in Dismissal: Please contact the Main Office.
