Dear Triadelphia Ridge Elementary School Families:

I hope you have been enjoying your summer. As the 2023-2024 school year quickly approaches, we have a number of informational items and changes related to transportation to and from school.

Many changes have been made to school start times and transportation across Howard County. This school year, our school day will begin at 8:40 a.m. and end at 3:10 p.m.  

For families that receive bus transportation, bus stop information for the 2023-2024 school year will be available by mid-August and can be accessed online via the Bus Stop Locator or HCPSS Connect Synergy under More Options and then Homeroom / Transportation / POS. Families will be notified by email and the HCPSS website when the information is available.

Additionally, we will be sharing more information soon related to drop off and pick up procedures at the school if you will be transporting your child by car. We have spent a considerable amount of time this summer evaluating our traffic patterns to ensure a safe and efficient process occurs each day.

I encourage you to visit the HCPSS Help Site to find answers to questions related to a number of topics. Additionally, please check the page that provides information for the 2023-2024 school year. Both of these sites are updated regularly so check back often for more information. Finally, I encourage you to bookmark our school's website where we post news, including our biweekly school newsletters, and other information throughout the school year.

Please don’t hesitate to contact the school with questions related to the information provided here, or anything else related to traveling to and from school. Thank you for your partnership and I look forward to welcoming students to school on August 28!

Dr. Tiffany Tresler
