2019-20 FCS Elementary School Afternoon School Bus Drop Off Information




Greetings Forsyth County Schools Parents & Students!


As we start the 2019-20 school year, please know that our first priority is to make sure your child is safe & secure on the school bus at all times.   This means making sure all FCS students are getting off of the school bus correctly in the afternoon—either on their own, with an older sibling, or with the bus driver releasing the student to the appropriate parent/adult guardian at the bus stop. 


With the goal of safety in mind, FCS Transportation is requiring that all families with children who will be riding the school bus complete a short & simple verification process before the start of the 2019-20 school year.  Links to complete the 2019-20 FCS School Bus Verification Form can be found on the Forsyth County School website at

This verification process is NOT required for students riding FCS Special Education Transportation.  Special Education Transportation will continue to be scheduled through your school’s Special Education Department along with FCS Special Education Transportation supervisors. 


Once school bus verification is completed for a student, the parent/guardian will receive an e-mail verification from FCS Transportation that includes 2019-20 school bus route and bus stop information.  For elementary school students, this e-mail verification will include additional information and an FCS bus pass, if necessary.   As in previous years, all 2019-20 FCS school bus route and bus stop information will be available in Infinite Campus/Parent Portal prior to the first day of school.  In addition, bus routes, bus stop locations, and morning school bus pick up times can be found on the FCS Transportation website at 


Starting this year, FCS bus drivers will be providing each FCS elementary school student riding the school bus with a color-coded bag tag.   This color-coded tag will provide all FCS school bus drivers with individualized information for each student that is intended to ensure the student is released from the school bus properly every afternoon.  The bag tags are color-coded as follows: 



If you have any questions or would like assistance, please contact your school’s FCS Transportation Supervisor.  Welcome back for another fantastic school year in Forsyth County Schools, and we look forward to a great school year with you on the school bus!
