SchoolPool Tips
Distribute a list of contact phone numbers to each family in your carpool. Consider having back-up drivers and listing their contact information as well.

Inform your child so he/she knows exactly who is picking him/her up as well as a back-up plan in the event of a no-show or sickness.

Set expectations for the time to meet, the location and departure times and discuss what to do if another family is late.

Consider riding with your child's carpool a few times to get your child comfortable and to see if the SchoolPool arrangements are working for everyone.
