August, Tue 12, 2014 - Sage International
You’ve been asking for it and we are happy to deliver! Below you will find answers to most of your questions about how to get your children to and from school. Also aside from the below, we enthusiastically encourage you to form neighborhood bike trains or carpools, ride the city bus and even walk if possible. Hold on tightly - here we go!
After many months of planning and working with Caldwell Transportation, we are ready to offer busing to/from the Parkcenter Campus. Given budget, scheduling, and other constraints we are not able to bus the downtown location - we ask for and appreciate your patience and understanding in this regard. Caldwell Transportation has established a list of bus stops and times for Sage bus routes. The schedule provides the currently planned times for pick-up (am) and drop-off (pm) at the given locations. If minor scheduling revisions are required, we will post the updated schedule before the start of school. You do not need to register to ride the bus, just arrive at your location at least 5 minutes before the scheduled pick-up time. The bus driver will handle it from there.
Please use your discretion in establishing a safe/comfortable routine for your child(ren) in using the bus stops. If you have questions regarding busing procedures, contact Caldwell Transportation directly at 459-6612
Elementary (K-5th) 8:00am – 4:00pm (Drop-off between 7:40am and 8am)
Middle School (6th & 7th) 8:20am – 4:20pm (Drop-off beginning at 8am)
MS/HS Downtown (8th – 11th) 8:00am – 4:10pm (Drop-off beginning at 7:40am)
Please note carpools including elementary & 6th/7th students may (of course) drop off starting at 7:40am
Traffic Flow - Parkcenter
Please take a moment to review the NEW traffic patterns and procedures for Parkcenter. With so many additional families, busses (!), two buildings and different starting times, we have a lot of information to give you. Volunteers and staff will be positioned to help you find your way, but arming yourself with knowledge and a visual guide is the best way to make sure things run efficiently and safely. A few notes:
Please familiarize yourself with the map so you know where you are going. Also, please stick to the times as outlined above. We understand this is a lot to absorb. This is a work in progress and we will make adjustments as necessary, but for the first few weeks, don’t forget to pack your patience….
Parkcenter to Downtown Afternoon Shuttle Bus
Back by popular demand! Even though you may have heard news to the contrary, the afternoon shuttle bus between Parkcenter and Downtown will continue this year. Please fill out the registration sheet and return it to either Parkcenter front desk. Because demand is high and we only have one bus available for this purpose, spaces will be granted on a first paid, first served basis. Also, students will only be put on the bus if you have filled out a registration sheet and made pre-payment. The shuttle bus will leave the Parkcenter Campus at approximately 4:25 and will arrive Downtown at approximately 4:35.
