Families choosing to access this shuttle should choose this option when registering in the Eleyo system. Parents will be able to sign their older youth in at the elementary schools, and those staff will ensure that they get on the middle school shuttle. The shuttle will leave all elementary sites no later than 8:00 AM. It is recommended that all students are on site by 7:30 AM.

Families who choose for their student to shuttle between elementary schools and Central will have to do so with a consistent schedule. To make changes to the created transportation plan at the time of registration, families must contact leadership staff.

Summer Vacation Credit

Families who are registered for all 10 weeks of the summer program on a consistent contract  will have the opportunity to use one contracted week of vacation (for example, if you are registered for 3 days/week, you qualify for 3 days vacation time to use throughout the summer). If you would like to take your vacation days, you need to notify the site leadership staff as well as Extended Day Billing (Stephanie Bloxham), a minimum of two weeks in advance.
