IMPORTANT BUSING NOTICE:

We are nearing capacity on many of our bus routes. Please contact the registrar registrar@heldebergworkshop.org or call 765-2777 and leave a message to check if busing is available. 

A Few Guidelines for the Workshop

  • Students MUST wear long pants and closed-toed sturdy shoes (no shorts or flip-flops please).

  • If you want to use bug spray and/or sunscreen, please apply them at home.

  • Pack a snack and water for your child.  There is no drinking water available at the Workshop, and no facilities for keeping snacks cold, so please prepare accordingly.  Given the number of nut allergies, please make your snack nut-free.

  • If your child needs medication at the Workshop, please provide a prescription/note from your physician. 

  • If your child is late or needs to leave early, sign them in/out at the office (behind the pole barn, just into the woods).

  • All adults on the Land must be signed in at the office.

A note about ticks

  • Ticks are common in Albany County in the spring, summer and fall.  It is a good idea to wear light colored clothing and tuck your socks up over the bottom of your pant legs. Check carefully for ticks when you go home. Insect repellent, if you choose to use it, should be applied at home.  For more information, contact the Albany County Health Department or http://www.albanycounty.com/health/lyme.aspx.

Dismissal (Authorized adults)
Please remember that we need authorization to release your child to anyone other than a parent.  The on-line registration process included names of authorized adults.  If you make arrangements with any other adult for dismissal please make sure to email or send a note. 

Transportation Information
If you are dropping off/picking up your child, please obey the parking signs for the safety of the children.  Children may be dropped off no earlier than 8:45 and picked up no later than 12:15.   If your child rides the bus, a parent (or other caregiver, with a note) must be at the stop to meet the child unless prior permission has been obtained.  Children will only be released to parents unless they have a note. Please be at the bus stop five to ten minutes early, but check the first morning with the bus driver since bus times change due to construction and other factors.

Bus schedules

  • Please arrive at least five minutes early

  • Bus times may change due to construction and other factors.  Parents should check with the bus driver to be updated on bus times as needed.

  • If an adult other than a parent is picking up, please give the driver a note!
