Less Than 2 Weeks Until School Starts! Meet the Teacher, Carpool Map and More…

The official first day of school for Students is Wednesday, August 17. Please take a moment to look at our Back to School Page to make sure you are ready! School supplies, how to stay informed, carpool times and so much more. We know the beginning of the year can be a bit overwhelming, especially for new families, but we are here to help! Make sure you are subscribed to this newsletter, so you stay informed of all the great things we have planned for this year. You can also check out our website ExplorisPTO.org for the latest information.


Staff will be on both campuses for an informal chance to meet your crew teachers. This is a drop in event, you can come anytime between 4:00pm and 6:00pm.

Exploris Family Carpool Map

We are now in week 3 of updating our family carpool map! Whether you need a daily carpool, occasional rides, or just want to connect with families that live near you, we hope you’ll opt-in to this map.

In order to access the map you must complete the form below. We’ll keep updating for about six weeks so everyone will have time to get carpools lined up. If you have already submitted your response and you would like to update/ change something, just email and let us know.

Exploris School Family Carpool Map 2022-23

  • Get on the Map! Even if you’re not sure if you will be carpooling, please fill out the form.  Your address will be on the map, making it easier to find Exploris families in your neighborhood.

The Map will be updated periodically as more people fill out the form.
