Carpool/Bus Procedures

Code of Conduct:

Adults                  Students

EBL Campus:


  • The designated bus pick-up area is just up the hill on the Founders’ Campus, near the top of the pathway that connects EBL and Founders’ Campus.
  • EBL faculty and staff supervise KPrep - Gr 3 students while they gather in two of the Gr 3 classrooms then proceed to the bus area at Founders’.
  • Please ensure your student knows his/her district name (i.e. Loveland, Mason, etc.) and bus #. Kindergarten teachers have a protocol for ensuring students get to the right buses. We encourage you to attach a tag to your child’s backpack with district name and bus #. Bus aides and bus drivers will also ensure that students are boarding the right bus, prior to them boarding.
  • Inclement weather:
    • During inclement weather, students will remain inside EBL until their bus is called.
    • Each child needs to have a raincoat and poncho kept in their cubby throughout the year. If they wear it home, please be sure to send it back the next day.
    • CHCA will provide each student with an umbrella to carry on their walk from EBL to the bus.
  • Additional protocol:
    • Please be sure your student knows whether he/she is riding the bus on a given day.
    • If you need to change your child’s pick-up status on any given day, please call 513-247-9944 x101 by noon.


(The main morning carpool drop-off is in the front circle.)
  • We have 3 carpool areas to pick up your child(ren):  Front Circle, road to the Montgomery Community Church, and Lower Circle.
  • On the first day of school, head to the gym and stop by the carpool table to pick up your cards. Carpool pick-up will be assigned as follows (though please extend us grace as this may change early in the year should we experience unusually heavy traffic in one or more line):
    • Front Circle – Last names A-G
    • MCC Area– Last names H-O
    • Lower Circle – Last names P-Z
  • Pick-up lanes will not be open until 2:50 each day.
  • All traffic will flow directly into each of the three carpool lanes.
  • Additional protocol notes:
    • Do not get out of your car during carpool.
    • Do not park in the front circle of EBL at any time. This is a fire lane to be kept clear at ALL times.
    • Exercise extreme caution and GO SLOW when driving on campuses.
    • DO NOT text and drive.

Thank you using caution and for helping us ensure the safety of all children.
