TLC at Sandown Central (PRESCHOOL & KINDERGARTEN) Transportation Guidelines
At parent’s request, transportation will be provided to kindergarten students living in Sandown. Two large First Student school buses will be routed to service students living in Sandown. It is the responsibility of parents to notify the school or Transportation Coordinator to utilize this service. Parents should also indicate whether their student will be picked up/dropped off from a home address or daycare.
MORNING COMMUTE: If a student’s pick up address cannot be routed on a kindergarten designated bus, parents may choose to place their student on a Sandown North Elementary bus to be transported to Sandown North and then shuttled to the TLC at Sandown Central. Students living closest to Sandown North will be expected to ride the Sandown North bus so as to limit the total time riding on the kindergarten designated school bus. Parents should contact the school or Transportation Coordinator to utilize the Sandown North Elementary school bus.
MIDDAY SERVICE: There will be no midday service provided by regular buses for kindergarten students.
AFTERNOON SERVICE: Every effort will be made to provide a bus stop for Sandown students needing transportation service home in the afternoon. Bus routes must remain efficient and as short as possible. If a student cannot be included on the PM route parents will be required to transport.
The service will run on early release days at 1:15 PM for those full day kindergarten students who normally take the regular buses home in the afternoon. Parents must notify the school or Transportation Coordinator in advance if planning to use the bus service on early release days.
PRESCHOOL SERVICE: TLC Preschool students may ride the AM kindergarten bus to school or the PM kindergarten bus from school if their stop is along the established routes for kindergarten students. There will be no midday service provided by regular buses for Preschool students. On early release days only full day preschool students who normally ride the regular buses home will be provided a ride at the 11 AM dismissal. Parents must notify the school or Transportation Coordinator in advance if planning to use the bus service on early release days.
ROUTE INFORMATION: Routes will be established during the summer and parents may use the Edulog Transportation Web Query on the District web site to find bus information for the TLC at Sandown Central. In the event a close bus stop is not available for the TLC at Sandown Central, parents will need to search Sandown North for the closest stop. As a reminder, this option will also include having students shuttled from Sandown North to the TLC at Sandown Central. Assistance, questions or changes to routes may be addressed by contacting Transportation Coordinator Sandy Hodgkins at Email or 382-6119 ext. 2229. E-mail is always best for receiving the quickest response.
