FCPS provides bus transportation for students who reside more than a mile from school or would have a dangerous route to walk to school. Bus riders should refrain from crossing or playing on private property, cooperate with safety patrols, obey the bus drivers, remain seated on the bus, and talk quietly. Please have your child arrive at the bus stop at least five minutes before the scheduled pickup time.
Kindergarten students must be met by a parent, childcare provider, or older sibling (middle school aged and beyond). Otherwise the child will be returned to school.
Here Comes the Bus
Transportation will uses an app called Here Comes The Bus once the school year has begun. Know when your bus is approaching your stop. Here Comes the Bus® app is a school bus tracking app that can simplify morning and afternoon routines for parents and students by giving them real-time bus location and text or email notification alerts, helping them get to the bus stop on time. Here Comes the Bus® utilizes our GPS data and an easy-to-use customizable map that works on one or multiple devices, such as a tablet or smartphone.
