Time to Update Bus Service Needs 2018-19

 school bus

The Transportation Department of the Wake County Public School System has begun to get ready for the 2018-19 school year. The Transportation Department is contacting current bus riders by phone and email asking them to go online to make Transportation aware of their changing needs.

 

Families with children that are transportation eligible and are riding the same bus to the same school next year don’t need to take any action.

 

Families that need to update their student’s bus service needs for the 2018-19 school year, should go online at www.wcpss.net/busrider and complete the form.

Families with a student assigned to a bus but not riding the bus are asked to submit the decline bus form at www.wcpss.net/declinebus so that Transportation has the family’s most up-to-date information.

 

If a family needs to look at their current Transportation information, they can find it online. Up-to-date transportation information is available in their student’s Home Base/PowerSchool account. Families not using Home Base/Powerschool can sign up for an account at their school. More information on Home Base is available at www.wcpss.net/student-information.

Schools Closed this Wednesday, May 16

Many of you are aware that thousands of educators from throughout North Carolina are scheduled to gather in Raleigh on Wednesday, May 16. They are attending a rally at the General Assembly to improve teacher working conditions and classroom opportunities for our children.

At this time, about 2,500 Wake County teachers have requested time away from the classroom to participate in this rally. More requests are expected in the coming days. Our principals can no longer ensure regular instruction and supervision.

As a result, all schools will be closed for normal operations on Wednesday, May 16. It will become an optional teacher workday. No make-up day for students will be required.
