While Park feels like a neighborhood school, families come from nearly 30 cities and towns in the greater Boston area.

To help reduce the traffic on Goddard Avenue and mitigate the School’s carbon footprint, we encourage families to carpool and to utilize bus service to and from campus.
 
For safety reasons, it is extremely important that drivers not use cell phones on campus. In addition, please remember that Park is a no idling zone.
 
Communicating Transportation Changes to the School:
The front desk will try to relay messages to students but must receive them at least an hour and a half before dismissal. Please call 617-277-2456 well in advance of the 12, 3, or 4:30 p.m. dismissal times.
 
Children in Pre-K–V who are not going directly home in their usual manner, or with their usual driver, must bring a note to their homeroom teacher on that day. The School requires notes from both families when a child is to visit the home of a school friend. Please notify your carpool or the front desk of any change in plans or additional passengers.
 

Carpool to Park School

PARKING
Because of fire regulations, parking is not permitted anywhere along the driveway at any time. Please park in a marked space in Lot A or B, not on the curb. Additional parking is available along Avon Street or at the After-School Program lot at 255 Goddard Avenue. Please do not park at 133 Goddard Avenue. Parking can be challenging on campus, and we appreciate your help in making the School a welcoming and safe place for everyone in the community.

Bicycle Regulations: Students must walk their bikes on all driveway areas within the School property. Racks are provided near the rear courtyard. We recommend sturdy locks, as our insurance does not cover theft. State law requires parents to provide safety helmets and reflectors for their children.
