We ask that families register in advance for the first full month of school. Please note: We are committed to providing quality child care for those families who need it due to work commitments or other serious obligations. Because logistics are more complicated than in past years, we have narrowed our focus to serve those families for whom this coverage is very important.

Bus Rules and Safety
Rowland Hall bus rules are in place to ensure the safety of our students and drivers. Review the rules.
Unlike many school buses, all Rowland Hall buses have been retrofitted with seat belts to ensure the safety of our students. Buses used for kindergarten field trips have four-point harnesses.
Maintenance is performed regularly on the buses, and the Utah Highway Patrol performs bi-annual inspections to ensure proper maintenance and compliance.
Rowland Hall is a member of the Utah Safety Council.
To ensure a safer air quality around our students our buses support the school’s “No Idling” pledge, which states that if you are stopped for longer than 10 seconds at the school or bus stops that you turn off your engine. Parents, while at the bus stops, are also asked to follow the school’s pledge.
All drivers are screened and have class B or class A commercial drivers' licenses. Drivers undergo background checks and are trained in CPR and First Aid. Random drug and alcohol screenings are performed throughout the year.
COVID-19 Bus Safety Measures
In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention order concerning facemasks on conveyances, all students and drivers will be required to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status, and/or the division's face mask policy, while riding on the buses.
In addition to masking, the following safety precautions will be in place during the school year: windows opened slightly for increased ventilation, hand sanitizer dispensers on all buses, and frequent cleaning of the buses.
Please contact Director of Transportation Bryan Bailey at 801-924-2954 or email@example.com.

The compost produced is used in our science garden at the Lower School.
