Summer Learning Transportation 

  • Fulton County Schools provides bus transportation for all students in the summer learning program. To provide this service, revised routes will pick up and drop off students based on "community" stops, high density stops, and school-to-school stops. This includes buses that will take students from their original home school to the summer school site. Please check the Transportation website after May 20th for bus stop and time information for your student. We will continue to use the "Here Comes the Bus" app during summer learning to ensure that parents have the most up-to-date bus information. Students attending Summer Learning Adaptive program can receive transportation based on their IEP. Please register with the student's home school no later than April 26th to ensure the student's route is in place for the first day of summer school.
