Transportation for students to Woodway Center

We will be sending out a form for our walkers and other families who do not currently have a bus route to Meadowdale Elementary. Those students have the option to take a school bus from Meadowdale Elementary to Woodway Center. 

For students who regularly take the school bus, they will continue to be picked up at their regular stop. However, the times will change. We will provide information on the new times as we get closer to opening at Woodway Center. In the meantime, families should make sure they have the Edulog app on their mobile device. Learn more about the Edulog app on our website.

Thank you for your patience

Thank you again for your patience. At this point, we do not know how long we will need to stay at Woodway Center. As soon as we have an update, we will let staff and families know. Our main focus is getting students back to in-person learning as soon as possible.
