Transportation Changes: For the safety of our students, any transportation changes must be made by written note with your signature and should be sent with your child at the start of the school day stating the alternate transportation arrangement. For your convenience, you may use the attached Central Elementary School Dismissal Change Form. No changes in transportation can be made throughout the school day in order to ensure all students depart the school safely. Also, the Valparaiso Community Schools transportation department is unable to allow students to ride the bus home with other students. Central Dismissal Change Form
Student Drop-Off & Pick-Up: Please note that you should not park your car along Institute. It is designed for student drop-off and pick-up only. Thanks for your cooperation!
