    Please Note: 

    Transportation is available to students living in pre-determined boundaries from their Power Up Summer Program host sites. The Atlanta Public Schools transportation policy dictates that bus stops are placed outside the shortest 1 mile navigation of elementary schools, and 1½ mile navigation of middle and high schools.  Students living less than the 1 mile or 1 ½ mile boundaries are assigned to the walk-zone. Read important walking safety tips here.
    For all transportation questions and concerns, contact the APS Department of Transportation at Transissues@atlanta.k12.ga.us or (404) 802-5500.

    KinderCamp [Hosted at Hope-Hill ES]

    KinderCamp is open to incoming Kindergarten students at Benteen ES, Cascade ES, Continental Colony ES, Garden Hills ES, Fickett ES, and Hope Hills ES. This is a one to two week school transition activity for families and children who are transitioning from home and/or early learning setting to a Pre-K program or Kindergarten. The goal is to provide the opportunity for the children to become acclimated to their new “big school,” experience school routines, learn or practice skills needed in Kindergarten, and to develop relationships with school staff and other Kindergarteners – all before school starts!
