Who We Are



Your home district will provide your child with transportation to and from school (depending on the district and distance from your home to the school). Your home district will provide you and ECS with your child’s bus and route information.

With your help, ECS establishes a normal dismissal routine for each child. If that routine changes, we request a written note in order to change any dismissal procedure. ECS organizes each student in a bus group and assigns a staff member to be the bus captain. At the end of each day, the bus captain checks in all students and puts them on the bus. If your child is being picked up at the end of the day, they will go to the back of the building to be dismissed by their homebase teacher.

Please note: Students may not ride a bus that they are not assigned to ride. Due to school district liability issues, students who wish to have play dates after school must be picked up.

When a student from PPS or Woodland Hills is admitted, ECS submits your information to your home district. PPS and WH will set up your bus transportation based on your application information.

All other districts require families to contact their district directly to submit information for transportation.

Afternoon Transportation Changes

This email will be distributed to the office manager, principal, vice principal, and E-Day staff of your child’s school. The office will notify the classroom teacher. Someone in the office will reply to your email to confirm receipt. However, if you are making a request after 12 pm (or 9 am on a half day), please call the office to confirm this change.
We hope that this will further promote student safety at our schools.
