After careful consideration and deliberation, we have determined that there is not enough interest to sustain a bus service at this time. Therefore, Assumption will not offer bus transportation for the 2016-17 school year. Over the past few weeks, we have reached out to previously interested families to learn why a bus service was no longer a need for them and the response was overwhelming: their daughter’s transportation had been taken care of by our girls and their families through carpooling. The result of the Assumption community in action and taking care of their own.
In the future, we will continue to revisit and assess bus transportation possibilities for our students and work diligently to assist families who may have a need for this service. We are very excited about the opportunities offered through Carpool To School and believe it will help to make things easier for all of our families .
If you are still trying to arrange transportation for your daughter to or from school, sports, or after-school activities, you will want to check out our updated data base of students wanting to carpool to/from neighborhoods throughout the metro area. You can also find other parents who are interested in carpooling and dividing up the driving with other parents.
BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL SUPERVISION: While making transportation arrangements for your daughter, it may be helpful to know that Assumption provides supervision for students in the cafeteria before school beginning at 7:00 a.m and after school until 4:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday and until 4:00 p.m. on Friday. Additionally, on designated 12:30 dismissal days, after school supervision is provided in the media center until 3:00 p.m. Students are allowed to bring their lunch and work quietly on homework or meet in groups for projects.
