Bus Service/BehaviorThe Wake County Public School Transportation Office establishes bus stops in our attendance area. If you have a concern or question about your child's designated stop, please contact the Transportation Office at 919-562-3630.
The same standards of conduct that apply at Pleasant Union apply on the school bus. Students may only ride the bus to which they have been assigned. Only the principal or assistant principal makes bus reassignments when necessary. Please do not make any requests to accommodate birthday parties, slumber parties, afternoon visits, etc., as we will not be able to accommodate these requests. Often, because of rerouting by the Transportation Department, we are unable to determine the number of students riding a given bus until dismissal.
To assist students in remembering his/her bus route, routes are named by colors. Route color signs and on duty staff assist students in locating the correct bus during dismissal.
