Lakeland Montessori Schools have a contract with the Polk County School district to pay to transport our students, on school buses, that live more than two miles from the school and less than five miles from the school.
In order to be consistent with all families, we determine the 5 miles as the distance measured from the closest pedestrian entry point of the property where the student resides to the closest pedestrian entry point of the school building that the student attends. We use Mapquest or Google maps, whichever is shorter, to determine the pedestrian distance.
Please contact Heather Manrow at to discuss transportation options.
If you are interested in coordinating carpools with other Lakeland Montessori Families, you can include your information on the Transportation Coordination Database Form and view families that have already completed the information.
