Because our students come from such a wide range of geographic areas, Viewpoint School remains committed to assisting our families as much as possible with solutions to transportation challenges. We strongly encourage our families to take advantage of carpooling and bus transportation options. These help the School reduce traffic along the Mulholland Corridor, thus supporting our commitment to be good neighbors and reducing our impact on the environment.
Many of our families arrive at school in carpools. Patrick LaBo in the Admission Office (email@example.com
) maintains a carpool list to assist families enrolled in the School with ride sharing. This list becomes available before the start of school.
We offer flexible and convenient transportation contracted through Tumbleweed Transportation. Transportation Director Nicki Thompson is available to answer questions about Viewpoint's bus program at 818-591-6548 or firstname.lastname@example.org
