2016/17 Transportation Requests (alternate pick-up/drop-off locations):
Each student is allowed a primary pick up and drop off point and one alternate pick up and drop off point. It is not necessary for either address to be the home address. For example: pick up at Grandma's house on Tuesday and Thursday, pickup from daycare on Monday, Wednesday, Friday.  Requests are valid for the duration of the school year, unless we are notified otherwise. Transportation requests expire at the end of each school year.  Therefore, your child's address has now been reset to his/her home address. Requests for the 2016/17 school year must be made in writing by August 10, 2016.  Please provide as many details as possible, such as caregiver's name, address and phone. If we do not receive a written request for your child by this date, he/she will be routed on the bus that services his/her home address.
Please feel free to use whichever means is most convenient for you (email, fax, mail).
Important Safety Reminders for You and Your Child:
  • Please have your child dressed for the weather and waiting at his/her bus stop five (5) minutes before the scheduled pickup time.
  • Backpack straps should be cut to fit your child. Long straps easily become stuck in doors and handrails. They are also a tripping hazard for your child and others. 
  • Sports equipment is allowed on the bus, but it must be secured in an appropriate bag. For example, a lacrosse stick must be fully contained within a lacrosse bag. Extra-long sticks, hockey sticks, and other items that do not fit in a bag must be transported to school by the parent. The school offers storage for such items.
  • If you would like to discuss an issue that is happening on the bus, please do not approach the driver at the bus. Feel free to call the Transportation Department at the number above and we can arrange a time for you to speak with your driver.
  • Eden Central adheres to the following guidelines when dropping students off in the afternoon:
    • For students in Pre-K - 2nd Grade:  The driver must see a parent, guardian, babysitter, or high-school age sibling before dropping off.
    • For students in Grades 3 and 4:  The driver must have reasonable assurance that someone is home for the student.
    • Grades 5 - 12 have no drop-off limitations, except at the request of a parent.
  • Non-public transportation requests must be submitted to the Transportation Department by April 1st. A new form must be submitted yearly. See link at left for the form.
