CA Offers New East Metro Transportation Option
Concordia Academy is thrilled to announce a new transportation option for families commuting to CA from the East Metro. Starting this fall, morning transportation to CA will be available from Hudson and Woodbury in our new 2016 10-passenger Ford Transit van!
We plan to create a route that will stop and pick up students at a location in Hudson, continue to Woodbury to pick up additional students, and then drop off the students at CA. Because of the number of students participating in activities after school, we only plan to offer morning transportation.
Final details, including cost and pickup times, are still being determined, and a formal signup will be happening at a later date. However, we would like to begin building a list of interested families. If you are interested in using this new transportation option or have questions about the program, please contact Pastor Tim Berner, Principal (firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-796-2677).
We have been working on this transportation option for quite some time. What a blessing that it is finally a reality!
