Carpool, Walk or Bike Together

SMA is pleased to partner with Schoolpool, a free program to help parents get their students to/from school. Schoolpool is a service of Way to Go, a federally funded program of the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG). This is an OPT-IN program, and we highly encourage all families to register, whether you have immediate carpool needs or want a back-up option for when life gets busy. The more families that register, the more likely our parents will be able to find good matches. Be sure to check back often as the list of nearby families is sure to grow. Click this video for more information on how it works.
