Carpool/Bus Procedures

With the start of the new school year and construction completed, please take note of the carpool and bus procedures for the 2017-2018 school year.

EBL Campus:


  • The bus pick-up lane is at the far end drive of Founders’ Campus, at the top of the pathway that connects EBL and Founders’ Campuses.
  • All EBL students will be directed to gather and line up by bus in the second/third grade hallway.
  • We will have extra faculty, staff, and signage working the first several weeks of school to ensure students are comfortable with the transition and their new walk to the buses. (Every faculty/staff member will be on duty!) Students will always be led by a leader who is ensuring students in their line are heading to the right buses.
  • 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. If you want to make sure your student knows his/her bus information, we encourage you to attach a tag to your child’s backpack. Bus aides and bus drivers will also be ensuring that students are boarding the right bus, prior to them getting on the bus.
  • Inclement weather:
    • During inclement weather, students will remain indoors until their bus is called and they are led outside.
    • 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 x100 by noon.
  • Final important note: As with any transition, please grant us grace and expect delays in the first couple of weeks of school as we all get acclimated to this new procedure.


(The main morning carpool drop-off will remain in the front circle.)
  • We have three carpool lanes in which to pick up your child(ren): Lower Circle, Front Circle, and MCC.
  • 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):
    • MCC Lane – Last names A-G
    • Front Circle – Last names H-Q
    • Lower Circle – Last names R-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.
  • Important note: while having three carpool lanes should help traffic run a bit smoother in the long-term, as with any transition, please grant us grace and expect delays in the first couple of weeks as we all get acclimated to the traffic flow.
  • Additional protocol notes:
    • Please do not get out of your car during carpool. Please do not park in the front circle of EBL at any time. This is a fire lane to be kept clear at ALL times.
    • Please exercise extreme caution and GO SLOW when driving on campuses. Please DO NOT text and drive. Thank you using caution and for helping us ensure the safety of all children.

Founders' Campus

With the Founders’ campus parking lot and widened driving lanes, comes an updated carpool/traffic flow that will hopefully yield a substantial traffic improvement in the long term.

This video briefly describes new traffic flow. Note that the morning drop off (00:24) lane will be to the far right just as you turn in from Snider Road. For afternoon pickup (00:58), only pull into lanes with numbered traffic cones.

MSL Campus:

Although minimal construction is being completed on the greenhouse, carpool and parking should be minimally affected.

Armleder Campus:

You have enough on your hands dealing with the never-ending I-75 and I-71 construction!!! Should there be any special instructions, you will hear from Mrs. Bailey.
