Transportation for ELCO students attending classes outside of ELCO
ELCO does provide transportation to students assigned to classrooms located in schools outside of the ELCO School District according to the school calendar that applies to each building. Changes to school calendars are sent to the ELCO Transportation Department by the Lancaster-Lebanon IU #13 or other school entity (for example, New Story, River Rock) as they are approved.
Students attending classrooms outside of the ELCO School District are referred to as ‘Out & About’ students. When accessing the parent portal, choose ‘Out & About’ in the dropdown box for school.
Transportation is provided as follows:
On days when ELCO SD is NOT in session for students and the placement school is in session:
The ELCO district van or microbus will provide transportation to/from each school that is open according to their school calendar.
On bad weather days:
- When ELCO is NOT in session for students, ELCO students are NOT transported to the ‘Out & About Schools’.
- When ELCO is on a delayed opening for students, ELCO students are transported on a delay to the ‘Out & About Schools’.
- When ELCO is on time for students, but the ‘Out & About’ school is on a delay, ELCO students are transported on the delay schedule of the ‘Out & About School’.
