Menlo Park City School District provides resident transportation for students attending Encinal School, Laurel School (Upper and Lower Campus), Oak Knoll (mornings only) and a connector bus to Hillview. Fewer cars make campuses feel welcoming, safe and easy to approach on foot. When choosing how students commute to and from school, families should determine the best options in light of their children's age and experience.
Menlo Park City School District will provide Transitional Kindergarten bus transportation for the 2023-24 school year for AM bus services ONLY.
