Carrie Joyce and Rodney Rivers are faces you need to know around our school! They are both amazing!

Bus Rules

A part of what makes us a unique charter is that we offer bus transportation that is free to families. Riding a school bus is a great experience for many. A bus is an extension of school and behavior must be aligned with school rules and procedures as well. Effective Sept 8th, your child will not be able to ride the bus if they do not have the attached bus rules on file for EVERY rider. This helps us increase accountability for all and an extra measure of safety. If you need a paper copy please reach out to school admin. Thank you for completing this for your bus rider(s).

Parent Academy

We are ready to launch our resource hub for parents through Parent Academy! Beginning September 1st, you will be able to go to our school's website and click on the Parent Academy tab. From there it will be helpful videos, etc.


We are also looking for presenters for our next Parent Academy upload. Do you have a helpful resource or strategy for parents? If so, email Principal Barnes with your proposal!

Are you seeking safe options for your child? TAPS is still taking before and afterschool enrollment. Before school will begin at 6:30 am on Sept 8th. Use the link to take you directly to their services. https://tapscharlotte.com/
