Time To Update Bus Information for 2018-2019: WCPSS Transportation is preparing for the 2018-19 school year. Families with children that are transportation eligible, who are currently riding the bus, and attending the same school next year don’t need to take any action. However, if you are eligible for district transportation and need to add or update bus service for next year, you must apply before June 11 to ensure service on the first day of school. Any changes or updates made after June 11 will be addressed in the order they are recieved. Basic bus service serves transportation eligible students at their home address. Requests for Dual Stops, Alternate Stops (Before or After-School Care), or Ineligible Students will not be accepted until August 7, and can not be guaranteed. More information and changes can be made here: Bus Service Needs for 2018-2019.
