Where can I find information about carpooling?
Parents/students manage their carpool situation. A student directory is available in the fall on the Canvas Utility Page in PDF form. Parents and students can identify other families who live in the same area and contact them to make carpool arrangements. Please note that we compile a list to share with all participants but we can't arrange matches for you. A quick google search for Portland/Metro zip codes can be helpful to show you who is a neighbor! Click here for the sign-up form.
A current Carpool List is located on Canvas in RAM Central Utility Class Page.
