BUS REGISTRATION - Time is running out to register!

Families whose children are eligible for bus transportation must register through HCPSS Connect Synergy to receive bus service for the 2023-2024 school year. Visit for instructions on how to register and more information. 
We don’t want any students who qualify for transportation to be without a bus if they rely on a bus to get to and from school. Please contact the school if you need help registering your child. Please contact the HCPSS Office of Transportation,, or call 410-313-6732 if you have questions related to your eligibility to receive bus service. You may also find several frequently asked questions online.
Families who reside in non-transportation areas are not eligible for bus transportation and do not need to take any action. Find the new non-transportation areas for your school online.  Students who receive transportation as part of their Individualized Education Program (IEP) or 504 Plan do not need to register.
Virtual Info Sessions on Substance Abuse, June 8
In conjunction with YouMe Healthcare, HCPSS will hold two virtual parent/guardian information sessions  on Thursday, June 8: A session from 5:30-6:30 p.m. geared toward elementary and middle school parents/guardians, and a session from 7:30-8:30 p.m. for high school parents/guardians. Parents/guardians may log on to the program via Google Meet. YouMe Healthcare clinicians Gelisa Lewis, LMSW, and Nneka Jefferson, LCSW-C/LICSW, will present on the topics of prosocial behaviors, positive relationships, mental wellness, and youth substance use. The sessions also will include positive coping skills, recognizing signs of stress and peer pressure, and interventions to address. Parents will learn ways to improve communication and interactions with their children. Resources will be provided on substance use, dealing with adversity, and risky behaviors. Additional resources for mental health services, screening tools, and educational materials will be provided.
