As specified in advance by a legal guardian, students may stay for our ACE program (if their parents have enrolled them), ride the bus, be a car rider, ride a bike, or walk.
Each year, we will have representatives from our bus transportation office at our school registration event. You can view their website by clicking here, Transportation Department, and they can be reached by calling (864) 594-4423 or emailing Linton Carpenter by clicking here.
Parents of car riders may obtain a car tag by attending our registration event or by visiting the main office. Car line procedures are detailed in the “Drop Off, Pick Up, and Parking” section of this website.
While we understand that families must make occasional changes to what a student does at dismissal, it is important to the safety of your child that s/he have a routine to follow on most days. As specified in advance by a legal guardian, students may stay for after school (if their parents have enrolled them), ride the bus, be a car rider, ride a bike, or walk. If you must make a transportation change, we require that it be made by the parent/legal guardian in writing, and received by the classroom teacher in the morning. Written notes should be in legible handwriting and include: the child’s name, how the child should get home, the dates changed (for instance, “today only,” “for the next week,” “from now on,” etc.), and your printed name. If an emergency arises and you must make a transportation change over the phone, this must be done by calling our office prior to 2:00 pm, and we may ask for identifying information to make sure that a parent/legal guardian is the one requesting the change. For safety reasons, we are unable to take transportation changes by electronic communication (email, text, Facebook messenger, etc.). If there were to be confusion about a child’s transportation, for the sake of safety, we will keep him/her at school rather than bus/walk/bike, and we will never put a child in a car with anyone who hasn’t been cleared in writing from a parent/legal guardian. Thank you for supporting us in these efforts to keep your child safe.
