Yellow Bus Challenge 2.0Yellow Bus Challenge 2.0 will officially begin on Monday, April 27th at 9 am when tickets go on sale for the 2015-16 school year. Thanks to funding from the Town of Tiburon and City of Belvedere, we are able to offer more routes, redesigned pick up and drop off locations, faster travel times, campus-specific seating and half-price passes for all RUSD students. In an effort to alleviate traffic on Tiburon Boulevard during peek school start and end times, there will be 13 additional routes: 11 in the mornings and 9 in the afternoons. Routes posted on the attached link are still being fine tuned, as are school start and end times, so there may be some minor modifications before passes go on sale. See more details, including current projected route maps and times, at this link.

The world needs innovators. That's where Galileo comes in. We think kids who learn to explore and fail without fear-the essence of innovation-are happier, more creative and more confident when faced with life's challenges. Drawing from the innovation process developed by the Stanford Design school, Galileo runs an evolving series of imagination-sparking programs for kids from pre-K through 8th grade:
Hosted by Reed Elementary School in 2015, we're excited to be back in the Tiburon community. For added convenience, we offer extended care from 8 am to 6 pm and an optional healthy lunch program.
Financial Aid also available (deadline of March 27).
