The Cove School encourages families and students to choose green ways to school. Walking, scootering, biking, carpooling and taking the bus are all wonderful ways to reduce congestion, save time and money and start the day by being active. Studies show that by doing exercise before school increases student performance and attention and it’s also fun!

    It's as easy as 1, 2, 3 to make your own green transportation plan. Safe Routes to School and Cove parent volunteers have created helpful tools to get you going green.

    1. Find your neighborhood on the School Pool Map.

    2. Use the School Pool website to find others in your neighborhood who walk, bike, carpool or take the bus.

    3. Choose your mode of transportation: 

      • Walk or bike. The Safe Route Map recommends the safest way to walk or bike to The Cove School.

        • There is a crossing guard located at the intersection of Spindrift and Prince Royal Passage for those entering the campus from the West

    We were the second highest elementary school in the county for percentage of
    green trips to school – 60%! Let's keep that number growing!

    For Driving;

    • Drop-off in front of the school by driving through the loop and only stopping to let your child safely out of the car. Do not park. This creates an unsafe buildup of cars. 

    • Pick-up in the loop by stopping only when you see your child waiting outside. Loop through again until you see your child to avoid an unsafe buildup of cars.

    • To walk your child into the school, you must park in a designated parking spot. Please do not block our neighbor’s driveways or park in staff parking. There is no parking, drop off or pick up in the staff parking lot behind the school.

      • There are limited visitor’s parking spaces in front of the school.

      • There is neighborhood street parking.

      • There is a parking lot at Cove Park adjacent to the school off Paradise Dr.
