Transportation

The logistics of getting a child to school everyday are an important part of the decision of where that child will attend school. Wooster works with families to ease the transportation challenge for busy families.

B & B Transportation has informed us that they will be following Connecticut State Department of Education and Connecticut Department of Health guidelines associated with bus transportation.

Wooster Transportation Fees for 2021-2022

  • In the event that we are forced to exclusively utilize remote learning, and/or utilize a hybrid approach to learning (students on campus some days and virtual other days), Wooster School will NOT prorate a refund based on the number of days transportation was provided but will only offer refunds based upon savings we are able to recoup from B&B Transportation.

Registration Form

  • The Registration form for 2021-2022 transportation will be available soon, and will be processed on a first come first served basis. Incomplete forms or forms returned without deposits will not be processed. Bus forms and deposits are due by August 1, 2021.

Student Drivers

With parental permission, students of legal driving age may drive to Wooster and park on campus. Special proximate parking areas are assigned to the seniors every year as recognition of their important responsibilities in the Self-help system in the School.

Car Pools

Upon request, families can be provided with the names of other students in their area who have expressed an interest in car pooling. The specific arrangements among families for carpooling are left to the families themselves. Please reach out to the Division Director for more information.
