Walking to School

Many students live close enough to walk to and from school. We want to make sure our students are able to cross the road safety. Bryan Road will provide adult support to help students walk across the crosswalk at 3:50 each afternoon. (We will be using the cross walk by the school entrance). We are not allowed to use an employee as a crossing guard so can't provide support for the morning.

Bus Rider Registration 2022-23 School Year

Students who have enrolled for the 2022-23 school year, have a school assignment that provides for neighborhood school bus transportation as noted on the student's official student assignment letter and wish to use the service on a regular basis, July 18 is the 2022-23 cut-off date for eligible families to request service to ensure service on the first day of school. Español.

For families who request transportation services after the cut-off date, bus service is not guaranteed for the beginning of the school year. Requests received after the cut-off date will be processed in the order received, and the transportation department will make every effort to provide service using existing bus stops as quickly as possible.

New enrollees to WCPSS are required to fill out a Transportation Service Request form when completing the initial application. The Data Manager will enter the transportation request for new enrollees. See the Student Enrollment page for more information on enrolling.

Kindergarten and New Student Registration

Step 1: Find your base school

In Wake County, students are assigned to a base elementary, middle, and high school for their home address. Find your base school using our address look-up tool. Your base school may have an enrollment cap. You will still register for your base school. Learn more about how an enrollment cap might affect you.

Step 2: Enroll online using this link


We have created this handbook to help you and your child understand the rules and expectations in school, on the way to and from school and at school-sponsored activities. We encourage you to discuss those rules and this document with your child.

Bryan Road Elementary School

Bryan Road Elementary operates on a traditional WCPSS calendar and serves PreK - 5th grade students.

School hours are: 9:15 start and 3:45 dismissal.
