Transportation policies outlined below exist for the safety of all students and liability for families.

Shuttle Bus:  A shuttle bus is available after school to provide transportation to off-campus practice facilities such as HealthEast Sports Center (HS baseball/softball), Lake Middle School (MS baseball/softball/track), Eagle Valley Golf Course (golf teams), and St. Croix Prep Academy (track and field 1-2 times/week).  Transportation is NOT provided back to NLA from these facilities.  Students with a license and a vehicle may drive themselves to practices but should NOT transport other students besides family members.

High School Games: Transportation is provided to most away games when the team leaves directly from school.  Athletes may ride home with their parents after a game but must check with their coach.  Occasionally there may not be a bus home from a game but that will be communicated ahead of time if the situation arises. 

Middle School Games:  Transportation is provided to most away games that begin earlier than 5:30 pm.  Parents will be responsible for their student’s transportation to any away games that begin 5:30 or later or on weekends.  There will NOT be transportation back to NLA after any middle school games.
