New Verde Lakes pickup, delivery for AHA students

CAMP VERDE - Beginning Jan. 4, American Heritage Academy will add a bus pickup location to Verde Lakes to accommodate students who live in the town's east stretches.

At approximately 7:35 a.m., American Heritage Academy's school bus will pick up students at the intersection of E. Preserve Drive and E. Verde Lakes Drive.

AHA Principal Lance Barnes says for guardians to have their students at the pickup point "at least five minutes early."

The school's Verde Lakes residents will be the first taken home, and will arrive back at the intersection of E. Preserve Drive and E. Verde Lakes Drive at approximately 3:30 p.m.

"Although we would love to travel farther into Verde Lakes, we simply don't have the time to do so and still get students to school on time," Barnes said. "We also want those Verde Lakes students to still have an opportunity to eat breakfast here at the school at approximately 7:45 a.m."

Anyone who plans to use American Heritage's new Verde Lakes pickup and drop-off location should call American Heritage Academy at 928-567-0462 and ask for either Alison Sandall or Lance Barnes. Both rider and parent will need to have signed a bus behavior contract before starting to use the bus service, according to Barnes.
