Today, General Services coordinates student transportation. Whether to a medical appointment or the airport, the courier team is trained on safety and supervision for all possible scenarios. They complete all direct care training and complete a defensive driving class.

The couriers are able to take students off campus shopping when they earn that privilege. This provides an opportunity to have a fun activity one-on-one that is unique to their position. It is instrumental in the formation of positive relationships, which is one of the reasons we choose to work at Heritage.
Accompanying the students to medical appointments presents its own set of challenges and rewards. Once again, the couriers are able to have time with the students, helping them through these anxious situations. We know we cannot take the place of their parents, but our goal is to treat them with the same respect and sensitivity as if they were our own. Some of these appointments can be rather embarrassing for the students, but the couriers have talked them through and remained discrete and professional.
We take one or more students off campus every day for something and our team of ten couriers does an awesome job of managing schedules, keeping students safe, and forming healthy relationships.
