Getting to RVC

We hope getting to and from school will be an enjoyable and hassle-free part of the day. Our school starting and ending times are different from White Hill Middle School’s, but we encourage RVC families and staff to be conscious of the fact that we are sharing a campus with limited parking and one access road. Here are some suggestions to make things smoother:

Yellow Bus Program

RVC is working with Marin Transit to have a trial RVC-only yellow school bus in the mornings. We need minimum ridership of 20 students to keep this program. The morning bus arrives at 8:25 am, and students will be welcomed by an RVC adult. 

RVC students can also ride the afternoon "late bus" with middle school students.

Walking School Bus

Informal groups will meet and walk to school in the mornings. Email our office manager, Elizabeth to take part in a walking school bus.

Bike to School

A new bike lane extension on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard leads past Glen Drive, directly to a path that circles the White Hill field, and right up to our building. It’s a great way to get some fresh air and exercise before and after school. Click here for route information.

Small public buses also run from downtown San Anselmo (7:58) through Fairfax (8:12) and drop off at Glen Drive (8:19) each morning--in time to get to school by 8:30.  In the afternoons, the bus picks up at 4:10 on Sir Francis Drake and goes through downtown Fairfax (4:16) to San Anselmo (4:26).  The cost is $1 per ride (exact change required) for students, and a youth pass can be purchased for $175 per six-month period or $325 for a year; contact the RVC office to purchase a pass.

Parking

If you drive your child to RVC, you will need to park on the street, as there is only a very small parking lot on campus that will mostly be used by staff.  Cars may not enter and leave the parking lot while the buses are loading and unloading. 

In the morning, the curb in front of the school on Glen Dr (along the parking lot) will only be for pickup/dropoff, not parking. Please note that cars will not be allowed in the lot when our bus arrives and unloads at 8:25.

In the afternoons, cars will not be allowed in the parking lot. Middle school buses will be entering the parking lot to load and turnaround between 3:00-3:20, and two buses return for another pick-up at around 3:40. It is helpful if you arrive as close to 3:30 as possible to avoid the middle school bus and car traffic. To avoid the parking lot, turn around at the north end of Glen Drive and park on the street near the school. Pickup can only done from Glen Drive (drive to end of street, turn around).

On the right side of Glen Drive as you approach the school, there are many reserved parking spots for residents, so please avoid parking there.
