Drop Off/ Pick Up
Students can be dropped off and picked up in front of our main entrance on Indiana Avenue. Please note Indiana Avenue is a one-way street. Please pull up to the curb on the left-hand side, encourage your student to exit/enter the car as promptly as possible, and then drive forward to allow room for the next family.
If you need to park and come into the school for any reason, please park on the right-hand side of the street or on one of of the neighboring side streets. We need to keep the curb in front of the school clear for drop offs and pickups.
The nearest bus stop is at 118th St. and Michigan Avenue. A staff member accompanies a group of students to the bus stop at the end of the day.
We provide students with reduced-price Ventra cards for a fee of $2. Families can load money onto these cards for bus fare as needed. Students and families can purchase these cards in the main office between 7:30 a.m. - 8:00 a.m. or 3:45 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Students in transitional living situations are also eligible for additional transportation benefits. If you are wondering whether you are eligible, contact Ms. Kviz at the main office (773-536-9098).
Many families utilize private transportation companies for their students. We do not endorse any particular company, but the most popular one is TAC, which offers van pickup and drop off service daily. TAC’s fees are $40/week for one way and $65/week for two way. For more information, call TAC at 773-517-4525.
We can also help students set up car pools with other students who live nearby. If you are interested in finding someone to carpool with, please contact Ms. Ambrose by visiting her in the main office or calling 773-536-9098. (Note: Ms. Ambrose is not at school on Fridays.)
We hope to offer busing for students, at a nominal fee, in the 2017-18 school year.
