What: During the weeks of June 19, June 26, July 17, July 24, Aug 7 and Aug 14, transportation is available within our school district boundaries for Summer Academy classes offered through Discover U Programs for Youth, a Youth Enrichment program of Robbinsdale Area Schools Community Education.
Who: Summer Academy students who request transportation by the deadline (see below for deadline information) will have a bus stop set up near their pickup and drop off locations as long as they are within Robbinsdale Area Schools district boundaries.
When: During the above-listed weeks (see 'what'), buses will pick students up for the 9 AM start and drop students off after a lunch period which ends at 12:45 PM (classes end at 12:15 but buses do not leave until 12:45 so there is ample time for all children to eat a free lunch which is provided by Robbinsdale Food Service). There is no transportation between classes (10:30-10:45 AM). If students need transportation both to and from the program, they must be signed up for classes for the entire morning.
Where: All bus stops will be set within Robbinsdale Area Schools district boundaries.
How: Fill out the form below for each child needing transportation. You must specify if you are requesting transportation for June, July and/or August classes; you may request all months on one request form. If you submit a request and later need transportation for a different month, you must submit another transportation request form.
Cost: There is no additional cost for busing.
Confirmations: If you request transportation by the deadline (see below), you will receive a postcard(s) directly from the transportation department confirming your busing information. It will be sent to the 'Mailing Address' you submit below and should arrive approximately June 5 for June classes, July 3 for July classes and Aug 1 for August classes. All transportation postcards list both pickup and drop off information - please remember that if your child is registered for only half the morning, s/he will not have transportation both to and from the program; you are responsible for providing transportation outside the official transportation times. If you do not receive a postcard by the approximate dates listed above, please contact transportation at firstname.lastname@example.org or, if you do not have email, call 763-504-8107. [Emails will get you a faster response.]
In order to set up bus stops close to your pickup and drop off locations, the transportation department has set the following deadlines for your requests:
May 15 for transportation in June
June 15 for transportation in July
July 15 for transportation in August
If you submit a transportation request after the deadline, the transportation department will contact you, by email only, to let you know where the nearest bus stop is to your pickup/drop off locations; they will not create a new bus stop for you. If you do not hear from transportation by the Wednesday before your child's class starts, contact them directly at email@example.com or 763-504-8107. Please do not contact them before this time.
Please complete the following information for each child requiring transportation. If your child is being picked up and dropped off at an address other than the 'Mailing Address' below, the entire pick up and drop off addresses must be inputted even if they are the same.
Although email is not required, it is the method that transportation will use if they have any questions, or to give you 'nearest bus stop' information if you submit a request after the deadline.
Classes held at a site other than Robbinsdale Middle School will have a shuttle to the class location and back to RMS.
