Shuttle Schedule & Flight Guidelines


Important information about flights for open weekends and school breaks

At each open weekend and school break, Tallulah Falls School offers school transportation to the Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson Airport.

For a student to be able to use the school transportation, their parent/guardian must provide the boarding office with the student’s flight information (dates/airline/numbers/departure time/arrival time).

Please follow the school guidelines when booking your students flights. The guidelines for each break are listed below.

If you are looking at scheduling a flight at a time that does not fit into these guidelines, you MUST contact the Boarding Office to see if the flight can be accommodated.  If you do not contact the boarding office prior to purchase, you will be responsible for any fees that need paid to change your student’s ticket to an appropriate time.

If your student is flying as an unaccompanied minor, please contact the boarding office with the information of the person who will be meeting your student at their final destination.  All unaccompanied minor fees must be pre-paid by the parent/guardian when booking the flight.

The cost for transportation to the airport is $142 round trip or $71 one way and must be paid in advance.

If you have any questions concerning flights, please contact the Boarding Office at 706-839-2002 or email sarah.lowry@tallulahfalls.org .
