Summer 2020 Transportation
All participants will drive to and from Talcott for drop-off and pickup. We will not have Avon and West Hartford bus stops. Social distancing on our usual buses is not workable. If state and CDC guidelines relax, we will reassess this.
Directions to campus:
RT 44 to Parsons Way
LEFT on Okolica.
RIGHT on Montevideo.
Go 1.5 miles on Montevideo.
Follow the YELLOW ARROW SIGNS at any turns.
There are 4 SPEED BUMPS.
There is an “Entering Bloomfield” sign part way up (ignore it).
There is a stop sign part way up (obey it).
You will see our “Talcott Mountain Science Center” sign and entrance on the right, 1.5 miles up Montevideo.
Montevideo is a private road with other residents. The speed limit is 15 mph and we ask that you follow this speed limit, take care when passing others on the road.
Arrival times will be staggered between 8:30 and 9:00 AM. When you get there, park where directed, and stay in your car until we ask you to come out. Each student each morning will get a temperature check. 100 deg F is the cutoff, and students will go home with a temperature of 100 or higher, and you will be asked if the student has any COVID-related symptoms or has been exposed to a COVID-diagnosed person. Students will then join their teacher and go to their classes.
At dismissal, stay in your car and a staff member will get your name and your child’s name and call for your child.
