    Posted by Karen Sinders at 5/25/2017 12:10:00 PM

    Parents,

     

    WCPSS Transportation is preparing for the 2017-18 school year.  We want all students to have a smooth start to the new school year. The following is important information regarding WCPSS Transportation for next school year:

     

    • Postcards will be mailed to families of current bus riders starting the week of May 15.  These cards will communicate the following: 
      • If your (transportation eligible) child will be riding the bus from the same address to the same school next year, you do not need to take action. If you need to update your bus service, please go online at www.wcpss.net/busrider.
      • You can find up-to-date transportation information in your student’s Home Base/PowerSchool account. (This a new tool that equips families with up-to-date, personalized bus information.)
      • For 2017-18, WCPSS Transportation will begin using email and text messaging to provide bus service information.  Families must keep their email addresses and phone numbers current in Powerschool to receive timely and important information.
      • On May 15, 2017, we will begin receiving, via the web, requests from transportation eligible families for the 2017-18 school year.
      • Any transportation eligible family who needs to make a change for 2017-18 is requested to meet the following deadlines to ensure service on the first day of school:
        • June 9 for Year-round calendar schools (regardless of track assignment)

     

    If you have any questions or concerns, please use the Internet form associated with Questions and Concerns as well as WCPSS Transportation phone line, (919) 805-3030.

  • School Messenger Change (5-1-17)

    Posted by Karen Sinders at 5/1/2017 5:05:00 PM

    Wake County Public School System is pleased to continue a service that enhances communication by allowing us to deliver important information to you. This month, we expanded that service to include text messaging and email.

     

    The School Messenger Notification System will alert parents and staff on matters such as principal messages, school closings, early dismissals, attendance, special activities and school emergencies.

     

    You should have received an opt-in message on the cell phone we have on record.  We hope you will take a few moments to follow the steps to "Opt-In" to text messages. Or, you can simply opt-in to receive text messages by texting YES to the number 67587 now. Note: If you have already opted in for another school, you will not receive the opt-in text message.

     

    In addition to performing the opt-in process, you will want to ensure that we have your phone numbers and current e-mail addresses in our student information database. You can do that by visiting the front office.

     

    Lastly, the expanded service calls multiple phone numbers for all associated parents/guardians. You can choose how you would like to be contacted by using the new SchoolMessenger infoCenter website or infoCenter mobile app for Android and iOS. Review the Parents Guide to infoCenter (http://bit.ly/sm-infocenter) for instructions on setting up your infoCenter account and setting your communications preferences.

     

    For support, review the Parent FAQ (http://bit.ly/sm-parent-faq) or contact your school. 

     

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. More information can also be found at www.wcpss.net/schoolmessenger.

  • Personalized Student Transportation Information (5-1-17)

    Posted by Karen Sinders at 5/1/2017 1:15:00 PM

    We are excited to announce that student transportation information can now be found in one single location, Home Base, also known as Powerschool. In order to provide the highest level of customer service to our families we are asking those of you who do not yet have a Powerschool account to stop by the school office to complete the necessary form. You can find more information at www.wcpss.net/student-information.

     

    Once you have a Powerschool account, look for the transportation tab to see your student’s transportation status and type. If your student is a bus rider, stop and route information is also provided.

     

    We hope this new tool provides families a quick way to find their transportation information and answers many of the questions often directed to the school or the transportation office.
