Transportation to LW

Transportation to and from LearningWorks is provided free of charge to all students who are actively enrolled in Minneapolis Public School (MPS). Our ability to maintain free transportation to LW students if they move out of the district is dependent on available resources. For more information on transportation guidelines, families can refer to the Family Handbook, but we would like to highlight a few key points:

  • During LearningWorks' Summer Program, transportation is provided by Minneapolis Public Schools Transportation Office. For that reason, LearningWorks has no control over the bus schedules, stop assignments, stop times, etc.
  • The Blake School provides transportation during School Year Program. All communication about transportation requests/changes should be directed to LearningWorks Student Services Director.
  • Any requested changes to a student's pick-up/drop-off location must be provided at least two weeks prior to the requested change. Though we will work with families, last minute change requests may not be possible.
  • It is important that students are ready prior to your scheduled pick up time. If the bus has not shown up for 15 minutes after your designated pick-up time, please contact LearningWorks Student Services Director right away.
  • In order to minimize delays, it is important that parents/guardians contact LearningWorks Student Services Director with any changes. This includes your written permission for your child to take another mode of transportation home (i.e. riding a bike, getting picked up)
