Transportation

Bus Service

For the fall of 2020, we will not be running a bus due to COVID-19.

For our Castle Rock (and farther south) families, Ascent Classical Academy of Douglas County will be operating a bus to and from our Lone Tree location every school day. The pick up and drop off location is in the Sam’s Club parking lot at 5940 Promenade Pkwy in Castle Rock.  There is a monthly fee to ride the bus.

If you are interested in securing a spot on the bus, please fill out this form, or to learn more, please contact Mrs. Flynn at mflynn@ascentclassical.org.

We have also teamed up with the WayToGo SchoolPool to connect families to arrange carpools and transportation to and from the school.

If you have any other questions, please contact Mrs.Flynn.

  • Ascent staff will help unload cars in the “Curbside Drop-Off Zone” in order to move vehicles through the line as quickly as possible.

  • You may enter car line by making a RIGHT TURN ONLY from Park Meadows Drive at the southmost (closest to Lincoln) parking lot entrance.
  • If you arrive prior to 2:45pm, you must park in a designated parking spot (remember, we share our parking area with other tenants and their guests).
  • At 2:45pm, you may form a double line beginning in the “Curbside Pick-Up Zone”.   Please pull all the way forward.
  • Ascent staff will notify your student(s) teachers that you are in car line. The teacher will release the student from the classroom to the “Curbside Pick-Up Zone.”
  • Your student will find your car with the help of Ascent staff.

Demonstrate Your Virtues:

  • Be moderate. Please do not make U-turns on Park Meadows Drive to get into carline (Law Enforcement has informed the school, they will ticket violators).
  • Be prudent: Please do not park in front/behind other buildings on the adjoining properties and ask your student to walk to your vehicle. This is extremely dangerous.
  • Be responsible: Please do not park across the street and ask your student to cross Park Meadows Drive. This is also extremely dangerous.
  • Be just: DO NOT LEAVE YOUR VEHICLE UNATTENDED while in car line.  If you must park, ONLY park in designated parking spots and use the crosswalk in front of the main entrance to enter the building. Please do not walk through parked vehicles.
  • Be friendly: Do not park in the south parking lot adjacent to the building as those spaces are reserved for the other tenants in the building. Students are not allowed to exit to this lot.  Smile and wave at others in carline.
