At most PAUSD schools, traffic congestion and safety hazards are associated with too many cars dropping off and picking up children from school.  Often families find themselves not able to walk or bike to school.  They live too far away from school, they have to cross a dangerous intersection, or the weather is too stormy and wet. Carpooling (or SchoolPooling) is a great way to help reduce grid-lock and stress associated with getting to and from school.
