Traffic Safety and Parking Lot Procedures


Attention New FRCS Families

Applications for our fee-based Regional Transportation program are accepted via an online application (see above), once your child has been accepted and has completed the admissions process.  An offer of enrollment for our academic program does NOT include a guarantee for our transportation program. Seats are limited by capacity laws and will be issued on a first come, first served basis. If seats are not available at the time that you have completed your registration packet, your child will be placed on a wait list.

Please do not attempt to access transportation unless you have received written confirmation of a bus route/stop assignment communication AND your student(s) have received their Bus Passes.

How do I register for the FRCS Regional Transportation Program? Please see Application INSTRUCTIONS above.

Upon completion of a transportation registration application and submission of all accompanying documents and fees, eligible students will be notified of their seat assignment and receive a bus pass in their Homeroom on the first day of  school.

Once registered and assigned a seat on one of the regional buses, please note:

  1. Students must show their bus pass to the driver each day upon entering the bus. The pass entitles students a school bus ride to and from school.
  2. Students are to ride only the bus to which they are assigned.
