Traffic & Carpool Announcement

Please note we are anticipating high numbers of families who will be dropping students off. We will ask all families to drive to the front of the school to drop off students. We will be closing off access to the parking lot so that teachers have opportunities to park in the designated spaces. Please follow directions of staff members who will be directing traffic.

Parkland Bus Routes

Important Announcement for Bus Route 3404

Message from MCPS

The MCPS Department of Transportation (DOT) has been impacted by the regional and nationwide school bus driver shortage. This shortage will have an impact on the timing and length of some school bus routes.


All eligible students will receive transportation to and from school; however, some drivers will have to handle two routes for the same school.


The following routes to Parkland MS are the first trip of a morning route that will make two trips. 3404.


On Monday, August 30, these routes will operate at the normal/published time. Beginning Tuesday, August 31, these bus routes will operate up to 30 minutes earlier than the published times so that the bus can take a second group of students, from a different set of bus stops, to your child’s school. On Monday, the bus driver for each route will give students information about how much earlier the bus will run beginning Tuesday.
