GCS High School Transportation FAQ

Connect Ed Call Updates:

January 9,2022 - Update #2

Good Evening Page Pirates student and families. This is Erik Naglee, principal of Page High calling with important updated information regarding tomorrow. As shared last evening, like other districts around the country, GCS is facing a severe bus driver shortage as well as another surge in COVID-19 cases in our community. As of this weekend, we do not have enough drivers to transport all children to school. As a temporary solution, starting Monday, Jan. 10, we are asking all Page High School parents to bring their children to and from school. All schools will resume their normal start time which is at 9:20 for Page. If you are unable to drop your children off at school, Page High like many other impacted schools across GCS will be offering shuttle bus service from some of our areas that have the highest number of students. These stops are:

Bus #1423

1. Claremont

Phillips and Woodbriar 8:45am

Patio and Bywood 8:55 am

Bus #1301

1. Greenbriar

a. Spicewood and Flint 8:45am

Second Run

b. Cone Blvd. and N. O’Henry 9:00 am

Bus #1005

1. Cottage Place

a. Cottage Pl & Forest Walk Dr 9:00am

b. 2823 Cottage Pl 9:10am

c. Food Lion Parking (Lawndale/Cottage Pl) 9:20am

Bus #913

1. Yester Oaks

a. Baylor Ct. and Baylor St. 8:45 am

b. 100 Yester Oaks Way 9:00 am

Bus #1303

1. Cone Apts.

a. 3200 Lawndale (Amber Ridge Apt.) 8:45 am

b. 2005 W. Cone (Lemans Apt.) 8:55 am

Second Run

c. Lake Jeanette Rd & Roberson Comer Rd 9:15 am

If you can't provide transportation for your child or get them to one of the stops above, GCS has also partnered with the Greensboro and High Point transit systems to provide free rides on city buses with a GCS Student ID or One Card. Remember, this does not impact any students you may have in elementary or middle schools, students with significant disabilities who receive special transportation or students who ride a magnet bus to Page each day. The magnet buses that will still be running both to and from Page each day were shared earlier today. There is one addition which is bus #905.

We will have a great school day tomorrow at Page. We will continue to keep you updated on any changes in the days ahead. As always, I appreciate your ongoing support of Page High where we dream big in all that we do!

Good afternoon Page Pirates student and families. This is Erik Naglee, principal of Page High calling with important information regarding update information for transportation tomorrow. As shared last evening, like other districts around the country, GCS is facing a severe bus driver shortage as well as another surge in COVID-19 cases in our community. As of this weekend, we do not have enough drivers to transport all children to school. As a temporary solution, starting Monday, Jan. 10, we are asking all Page High School parents to bring their children to and from school. If you are unable to do so, Page High like many other impacted schools across GCS will be offering shuttle bus service from some of our areas that have the highest number of students. These will be released later today as soon as everything is finalized. These bus routes will be driven by Page High school coaches and staff that have their CDL licenses.  Please stay tuned for additional ConnectEd messages.

If you can't provide transportation for your child or get them to one of the stops that will be shared later today, GCS has also partnered with the Greensboro and High Point transit systems to provide free rides on city buses with a GCS Student ID or One Card. Remember, this does not impact any students you may have in elementary or middle schools, students with significant disabilities who receive special transportation or students who ride a magnet bus to Page each day. The magnet buses that will still be running both to and from Page each day are buses:

90,510,649,653,689,880,908,1065,1086,1093,1094,1115,1148,1267,1275,1278,1280,1297,1310,1312,1328,1344,1352,1361,1370 and 1454.

Additionally, I will be offering a Town Hall meeting at both 3:00 and 6:00 today. I will give an overview of transportation and then be available for a Q and A. The link to both sessions is below and it can also be found on the school website.

 

As always, I appreciate your ongoing support of Page High where we dream big in all that we do!

Dear Page High Parents and Families:

Guilford County Schools has not been immune to the significant bus driver shortages that schools are facing across the nation or the rising number of COVID-19 cases in our community. As of this weekend, we do not have enough bus drivers to provide transportation for all students who have requested it. To manage this shortage, GCS transportation to our school is being suspended, except for students with significant disabilities who receive special transportation.

We are asking all other Page High parents to bring their children to and from school, starting on Monday, January 10. Students who do not have transportation may also use the public transit system for free by showing their Student ID badges (also called One Cards). GCS transportation will remain in service for elementary and middle school students, magnet students, and for students who do not live in areas served by the transit systems in the City of Greensboro or High Point.

We recognize that this change poses a hardship for many of our families, and we sincerely apologize. Please know that we are doing everything we can to keep our classrooms and schools open while also managing an emergency public health situation.

If your affected student plans to use public transit, it is easy to find your route online.

For Greensboro routes, use Google Maps, which has a direct connection to GTA. Download Google Maps for Android or Google Maps for Apple.

For High Point routes, use the HPT Moovit tool.

Again, we apologize for the inconvenience this may cause you and your family. Although this solution is not ideal, we are grateful to our partners in the CIty of Greensboro and the CIty of High Point for offering free transportation for students who cannot get to school another way. We look forward to resuming all school bus transportation services as quickly as possible and will keep you updated regarding our progress.

We appreciate your flexibility and assistance as we continue to manage this challenging situation.

Sincerely,

Erik Naglee
Principal
