Neighborhood Schools, STEAM, Dual Immersion and Transportation
School Placement: A child’s neighborhood school is determined by the parent’s physical address in the town in which they live.
Child Using Transportation Services: The selection of a neighborhood school is very important and should be made prior to registration. Having the daycare address for your student’s pick-up/drop-off location ready at registration helps assure your student's transportation schedule.
Location change during school year: If a child moves to a different home address outside of their neighborhood school boundary they are currently attending, parents will be responsible for initiating registration in their child’s new school. If there is no room available at the new neighborhood school, parents may be responsible for providing transportation to the previous school until a spot becomes available.
EHSS STEAM School and Alturas Dual Immersion School Lottery: Families interested in entering their child into the lottery for STEAM education at Ernest Hemingway or Dual Immersion education at Alturas Elementary may need to participate in the school lottery system. This includes families with students already in the program. Please reach out to the schools for more information.
Please call the Transportation Department at 578-5420 for questions on transportation services and neighborhood school boundaries.
