• Bus service is provided for our base area students living one and one-half miles or more from school and magnet families that have transportation noted on their magnet status.. 2024-2025 bus rider registration can be completed on the WCPSS website.  PreK-1st grade students must be accompanied by an adult for the morning and afternoon bus stops. Students MUST have their backpacks with them daily as their BUS TAG will be looped on the handle. This is the “ticket” to ride the bus and provides identifying information in the event of an emergency. It is VERY important that bus tags accompany your child daily if they intend to ride the bus.  Click here for the most up to date bus route information!
