Carpool Registration
If you have any students in grades 1-5 AND you know of another family or families with whom you wish to carpool, please click here to fill out the carpool registration form. Note that every family with a 1st-5th grade student will receive a carpool assignment whether or not you register. If you only have children in TK or kindergarten, your teachers will give you your carpool information at the beginning of the school year. The purpose of this registration is to make sure that families who want to carpool together are in the same area. Please contact Shannon Paulo at 704-708-6128 or spaulo@covenantday.org if you have any questions.
