Several transportation options are available for students and their families.
1. Driving to school
Families with students who are old enough to drive may decide this is the best option for them. However, families should be aware that parking at Hill-Murray School is limited. Student parking permits for the school lot are offered at $155 each and are distributed to seniors first, then to juniors and so on. If you have questions regarding parking permits, please contact Hill-Murray School Assistant Principal, Mrs. Barbato at 651-748-2423.
Families who are would like to investigate a carpooling option can indicate their interest when filling out their enrollment agreement. Each spring, Hill-Murray School will compile lists of families by zip code and email those lists out to families who have requested carpooling information. Then, families are able to make contact and coordinate carpooling groups. If you need additional assistance, please contact Jacquie LaMonica at 651-748-2408

For Students Living in ISD #622:
By state law, students who live in Independent School District #622 and are more than 1.5 miles away from Hill-Murray School (Maplewood/North St. Paul/Oakdale—the district in which Hill-Murray is located) are eligible to receive free transportation to Hill-Murray. See below for District #622 routes and times.
ISD #622 posts route schedules on their web page, www.isd622.org. ISD #622 will continue to provide transportation services for our families that live within this district boundary. Your student will be picked up at his/her designated stop and brought directly to Hill-Murray School in the morning. Please note students residing outside ISD #622 who wish to be picked up at an existing stop can be served. However, they must complete a district form found on the ISD #622 web page, titled "out of district/outside of school attendance boundaries." This form must be filled out and sent directly to their district offices. The following steps will assist in confirming the route time and pick up point for your student:
