Timberland Charter Academy offers busing to families who live within a defined area around the school. If your family does not qualify for busing, parents are expected to provide the means for their children to get to and from school. For more information, contact the school office at 231-767-9700.

Drop-off and Pick-up

Every school day begins and ends in our parking lot.

Drop-off and pick-up times can be hectic. But if we all work together, it can be a quick and efficient experience. If you would like to speak with one of the teachers, please pull into a parking space, stop into the office, and wait until after dismissal. Also, please remember to:

  • Drive slowly and be aware — precious children are everywhere.
  • Enter from the McLaughlin Rd. entrance only.
  • Be patient with fellow drivers.
  • Stay off your cell phone.
