Dear Holy Family Parent,
You’re receiving this email because you have been entered in Holy Family's Schoolpool system. It's this really cool thing where you can go online to view a map of your area to see what families live closest to you within 7.5 miles and contact them to set up carpools or to even find walking, biking or busing buddies. There is no obligation to participate.
Recently the school announced its partnership with Way to Go and provided you the opportunity to opt out of the voluntary program. The decision to NOT opt out means your family's information has been uploaded into Way to Go’s secure mapping website to only be shared with families at Holy Family. If you are interested in participating, simply contact your matches to determine interest and make arrangements. It can be used for planning full-time, part-time and emergency trips and is a great resource to meet nearby families for other reasons such as temporary transportation needs for emergencies, play-dates, babysitters, etc.
Schoolpool is a service of Way to Go, a federally funded program of the Denver Regional Council of Governments. Its only goal is to help reduce traffic congestion and pollution, so rest assured your information will only be shared with families at Holy Family. No third parties will ever see your information, unless you elect to share your information with families at other schools.
Use the links below to:
1) See your matches - The first link generates a pdf of your closest matches, which is perfect for the fridge. There’s no need to log in or create an account. Email Way to Go for help at email@example.com if you did not receive enough matches.
2) Change your address or add comments - The second link will send you to a log in page where you can change your address, add comments indicating your interest for other parents (i.e., can provide morning rides in exchange for afternoon rides, student is in afterschool activities, looking for a walking buddy in the mornings, etc.) and elect to share your information with families at other schools. Once you log in, click on the mustard "Schoolpool" tab to "Manage your household." You can change your address to an intersection to keep your address private.
3) Opt out - If you do not want your information shared with families at Holy Family, click on the third link to opt out of this program.
Information is provided for your use only. Way to Go does not run background checks, confirm valid drivers' licenses or assess insurance coverage on participants. Potential users are advised to screen participants to their personal satisfaction and check their own insurance coverage for carpooling to assure that they are covered under these voluntary arrangements. No drivers, vehicles or insurance are provided.
If you have any questions or need anything, just contact Way to Go at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-458-7665.
