Yellow School Bus


Timberland Charter Academy offers bus transportation within a defined area around the school. Otherwise, parents are expected to provide the means for their children to get to and from school.

Students waiting for bus


Students may ride buses under the conditions of the transportation handbook, which is available at our school front office. The busing reference sheet outlines the information you need to know as a parent and student.

Please call us at (231) 767-9700 for complete info including the designated boundaries.

Please log in to the Parent Portal to submit a bus application.

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.

K-4 Drop-off: 8:05 a.m. - 8:15 a.m.
K-4 Pick-up: 3:20 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

5-8 Drop-off: 7:05 a.m. - 7:15 a.m.
5-8 Pick-up: 2:20 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
