2018-2019 Bus Information


Please note, if your child was a former 2017-2018 bus rider at another WCPSS school, their transportation will roll over to us at Bryan Road and will be signed up for the bus automatically.

  • If your child did not ride the bus last year, if your child is a kindergartner, or if your child is new to WCPSS, click here and scroll to the bottom to sign up to ride the bus to and from school during the 2018-2019 school year.



Safety First! These videos will be shared with your scholar within the first week of school and we wanted to share them with families too!


  • Please be present at the bus stop 10 min prior to pick up and drop off time (even on ERD days)
  • For K-1 students, someone must be waiting at bus stop (parent, older sibling, or authorized person)
  • Students are not permitted to ride the bus home with anyone else or get off at a different stop
  • Any transportation changes (car or bus) must be presented in a written note to the classroom teacher in the morning. Do not communicate transportation changes via email or Seesaw as teachers may not be checking these during the school day.
