In addition, parents’ insurance also may provide coverage for injuries to their child(ren).

***NEW transportation guidelines for 2014-15***
by posted 08/06/2014
 

New for 2014-15 - All parents enrolling a child/children for school at any WCPSS school after May 30 must request transportation at the time of enrollment in order to receive bus transportation.  This will become a part of the enrollment process.  A few things to note:

 

*Current students that are receiving bus transportation need to do nothing.  You will be grandfathered in and receive transportation (this includes 8th grade students that will continue riding the bus to WFHS next year)

*Current students that are not currently receiving bus transportation must fill out a form to request bus transportation.  You can do this at www.wcpss.net/parents/transportationFollow the prompts to fill out a service request.

*Students that are pre-enrolled for next year, regardless of the date this was done, and are not currently a WCPSS student, need to go online to www.wcpss.net/parents/transportation and fill out the service request.

*When filling out the online form or providing the information for the registrar at the time of enrollment, address and school must be correct and you must be eligible for transportation (as before, transfers do not come with transportation).

*For Wake Forest High School, students that have registered prior to June 21 will be guaranteed that they will have bus service on the first day of school.  After this date, transportation will do all they can to provide service on day 1 but cannot guarantee this.

*Wake Forest High School does not assign routes, manage drivers, or arrange pick up times.  We also cannot approve a student getting on any bus other than the one they are assigned to.  For transportation related questions:

 

  1. The centralized transportation phone number is 919-805-3030.  This is the phone number designated to receive any parent inquiries.  The number will initially record to an automated voice message, then monitored by transportation phone center staff members and relayed to the appropiate transportation center.
  2. All parents/guardians are now able to utilize the required online request form – http://www.wcpss.net/bus-support - in order to request the start of bus transportation for new students or request transportation to their new address if they have moved and are still eligible for transportation.
  3. The transportation website (http://www.wcpss.net/transportation) continues to be updated, and is an excellent source of information for parents and staff. It includes bus routes, bus updates, FAQs and transportation policy and guidelines. 
  4. You may go to http://www.wcpss.net/routes to review bus routes. The routes listed are continually updated, with the most current routing information.  Please feel free to contact your Area Transportation Manager, if you notice any issue. 


The links below will provide you with answers to questions that you may have as you start this process.  Again, current students that are receiving bus transportation need to do nothing.  You will be grandfathered in and receive transportation (this includes 8th grade students that will continue riding the bus to WFHS next year)
