Campus Shuttle Service

Francis Parker School provides morning, afternoon, and evening shuttle service between our Mission Hills (Lower School) and Linda Vista (Middle and Upper School) Campuses.

There is no additional cost for our Campus Shuttle Service.

Please note that Lower School Students need to sign-up before they can ride the campus shuttle and should do so with their Lower School teacher or with the Lower School office.


Lower School to Middle/Upper School

The Mission Hills Campus shuttle leaves promptly at 7:30 AM from the bus loading zone on Randolph Street. It then proceeds to Congress Street in Old Town to collect the Coaster shuttle riders at 7:40 AM. Students disembark at the Upper School Viterbi Science building at approximately 7:50 AM. 

Middle/Upper School to Lower School

The shuttle bus leaves at 7:45 am. Students board the shuttle bus by the Upper School Viterbi Science Building, where the driveway splits around the Upper School. When students are dropped off in the Linda Vista campus main entrance, they proceed on the sidewalk toward the Upper School classrooms and wait on the concrete pad at the end of the 2-story building. Parents are not permitted to drive into the delivery/faculty driveway or to drop students off on Linda Vista Road, so please drop students off in the Drop-Off Zone to walk alone or with a sibling.

Lower school students missing the 7:45 am bus departure from the Upper/Middle School are the responsibility of the Parker driving adult.

Please confirm that the child is seated on the bus before leaving the school grounds. You will be asked to return and pick up the student, if necessary. No student will be permitted on-board the bus in the delivery driveway after departing from the Upper School sidewalk.


Middle/Upper School to Lower School

Shuttle riders, and regular contracted riders, board the buses at the same time and depart the Linda Vista campus promptly at 2:40 pm. Buses are parked at the far driveway at the west end of the campus, behind the Upper School buildings.

Students will be directed as to which buses are shuttle buses. No stops are permitted on route between campuses. Shuttle riders delivered to the Lower School typically wait in front of the gate for their ride or queue in the quick pick-up line, which starts at the end of the last parked bus. Parents are permitted to pick up the students after the buses have departed the Lower School campus.

Lower School to Middle/Upper School

The shuttle bus departs with the regular afternoon buses at approximately 3:20 PM. The bus will deliver the riders to the Linda Vista campus via the bus/faculty driveway and deposit students at the Viterbi Science Building, where the driveway splits around the Upper School.

Students may walk to their waiting cars or on the pathway from the Science Building to the Administration Building for parent pick up at approximately 3:30 PM. Parents are not permitted to drive into the delivery/faculty driveway and are asked to please wait in the main entrance circle or parking lot. Students should sign-up with their teacher or with the Lower School office.


Middle/Upper School to Lower School

A late shuttle bus travels from the Linda Vista (Middle/Upper School) campus to the Mission Hills (Lower School) Campus. The vehicle leaves promptly at 5:00 pm. Students board just east of the Middle School Gym at the entrance area to the Field House.

Pick-up and Drop-off Notice

Please note that parents are not allowed to drive into the bus/faculty driveway to pick up or drop off students and are asked to please use the main entrance and designated drop-off/pick-up zone. We greatly appreciate your cooperation as a matter of student safety.
