Transportation Information for School Year 2016-2017
Legacy Christian Academy is pleased to offer van transportation to and from the school. At this time, we offer transportation to limited areas with several convenient pick up locations. Because seating is limited, interested families must inform the school as soon as possible. Transportation needs for the fall will be reassessed at the end of each school year. Parents will be required at that time to indicate interest.
Cost: For 2016-017 school year, the transportation cost per month is:
$160 per child
$200 for two children
Families with more than two children are asked to contact the school for rates.
Busing will be provided beginning the first day of school and continue through the last day of school: September to June.
Morning & Afternoon Drop-Off – Parents are asked to please arrive 10 minutes before the spot’s pick up time. The driver is unable to wait for late arrivals. For afternoon drop off, students must be picked up by a parent or guardian. If someone else is responsible for your child please contact the school in written form (email) with responsible party information. Unaccompanied students will be returned to Legacy Christian Academy where parents can pick them up. All students will leave the school at 2:45 pm.
Car & Booster Seats: Since the safety of our students is of the utmost importance we are asking all families to bring a suitable car seat or booster seat to your stop on the first day of school. Please note, the child safety seat will be installed in the van for the entire school year. It is not possible to install and remove car seats on a daily basis. The State guidelines are below in reference to the use of car and booster seats.
Children 12 years old and younger must ride in federally approved child safety or booster seats until they are five years old and weigh at least 40 pounds.
Children older than five but younger than 12, who weigh more than 40 pounds, have the option to not ride in booster seats but must use safety belts.
It's crucial to note that weight determines when a child no longer has to ride in a child safety seat. Please Note:
Busing delays or cancellations due to inclement weather, detours, etc. are communicated as soon as possible via text message or phone contact by your bus driver or the school.
Busing is not available due to severe inclement weather regardless of whether school is cancelled or not.
If you have a need to reach your bus driver in an emergency or you have any changes to your normal schedule please contact your bus driver as well as the school.
