School sys­tem hosts bus hot­line for par­ents, stu­dents

Maryland Independent - - News -

Charles County Pub­lic Schools (CCPS) is spon­sor­ing a bus hot­line for par­ents to call with ques­tions about school bus routes. Call 301-932-6655 to ac­cess the hot­line. The hot­line is avail­able from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Aug. 25-26 and 6 a.m.-5 p.m. Aug. 29-30.

Par­ents can ac­cess bus routes through the School Lo­ca­tor fea­ture avail­able on the CCPS web­site. School Lo­ca­tor is de­signed to al­low the pub­lic to en­ter an ad­dress and see which three schools — ele­men­tary, mid­dle and high — an ad­dress is zoned for. It also in­di­cates if the ad­dress is el­i­gi­ble for bus transportation to a par­tic­u­lar school, the bus num­ber and the lo­ca­tion of the clos­est bus stop to the ad­dress.

School Lo­ca­tor can be ac­cessed at Select Transportation from the bot­tom of the Quick Links sec­tion of the home page, and then choose School Lo­ca­tor/Bus In­for­ma­tion from the left­side menu. School Lo­ca­tor uses map­ping data from the county and fil­ters it by the sys­tem’s cur­rent school zones.

Ad­di­tion­ally, bus stops within es­tab­lished sub­di­vi­sions are per­ma­nently placed at spe­cific lo­ca­tions to en­sure con­sis­tency and eq­uity among rid­ers and will not be changed. Buses may run later than nor­mal dur­ing the first week of school to ad­just for changes in routes and/or es­tab­lished stops.

For more in­for­ma­tion about bus routes, con­tact the child’s school, or the transportation de­part­ment at ccp­strans­porta­ or 301-934-7262. Bus stop change re­quests must be sub­mit­ted on­line through the school sys­tem web­site at­re­quest/.
