Perhaps it is a good sign that we have completed our first week and carpool seems to be the topic on most parents’ minds. It definitely has been a good week and it is gratifying to see so many happy faces on campus. My hunch is that you will have some tired kids this weekend.
But, carpool is an important topic, as we must move 500 children on and off campus in as safe of an environment as we can provide. I know it seems simple, but variables like age and mobility of students, three different locations, mixed carpool, new traffic patterns, student drivers, and different arrival/dismissal times combine to create a myriad of options. While we began the year with best of intentions, the first week of carpool has shown the need for some changes. I will try to make this as simple as possible!
