Does St. Mary provide transportation?

No, parents are responsible for the transportation of their students to and from school. Our families often join carpools to share the responsibility of getting to and from school during the week when coming from a distance. However, we suggest contacting St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Johnstown as they offer transportation services for certain routes. For Fort Lupton families, please contact St. William Catholic Church regarding their school bus route.
