  • Hopper Transportation Program

    Georgetown Day School offers a variety of transportation options for Pre-K–12 students to help
    our busy families around the Washington, DC metropolitan area navigate between two
    distinct campuses.

    The 2019-20 school year will bring some exciting changes to the Hopper Transportation Program as we prepare for school and campus unification in 2020-21.

    As part of our LMS building development agreement with the Board of Zoning Adjustment, the ANC, and the Tenleytown neighborhood, GDS has committed to decreasing our overall car trips to campus. GDS has a robust plan for meeting those commitments, which includes: shuttle buses to campus, carpooling, incentivizing and encouraging walking and biking to campus, and public transportation.
    These changes are good for the quality of life on the unified GDS campus, good for you (and your car)—and good for the planet, minimizing our carbon footprint. Check out an overview of next year’s transportation offerings.

  • Save Time with SchoolPass

    • Shuttle Enrollment and Changes - Use SchoolPass to register for shuttles and make changes to your daily travel routines.
    • Reduced Time Managing Dismissal Changes - When families use SchoolPass to share changes to students’ daily routines, that information is automatically shared with appropriate staff and faculty.
    • Faster Afternoon Carlines - 100% participation results in faster carlines. Families share license plate information with GDS. SchoolPass then recognizes the car in carpool and alerts faculty to whose rides have arrived so that we may more quickly help children into cars during afternoon carpool.
    • A Safer Campus - The school is alerted immediately to any unknown-to-GDS or non-approved vehicle on campus. This adds an additional level of security for the students, faculty, and staff.
