  • Alternative Transportation

    LCPS Transportation will begin accepting requests on Monday, June 20, 2022, and ending on Friday, July 22, 2022 for the upcoming 2022-23 school year.  It will reopen again on September 12, 2022. 


    Collaboration between the Department of Digital Innovation and the Transportation Division will give parents and guardians the ability to make alternative transportation requests using ParentVUE.  Alternative Transportation is defined as “Transportation to/from a location that is not the bus stop established based on the student’s home address.”  Examples are daycare or a family member’s residence.  Requests for alternative transportation must also be to a location within the attendance area of your student’s school of assignment.

    Each request is for an individual student only and is reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Parents will be notified by email regarding the decision made on the request.

Both the student tag and parent/guardian/escort tag will be labeled with the student ID number. The tag must be presented to the bus driver at the bus door when meeting the Kindergarten child at the bus stop.
    • If a replacement or additional tags are needed, please contact your school secretary.
    • Kindergarten students are released first from the bus so the driver can ensure a parent or guardian is available to receive the child.
    • Any students not met will be returned to the school office at the end of the bus run. In this case, parents will be required to pick up the student at the school office.
