Union County NC School Supply Lists and Bus Schedules
The Union County NC public school system is a large county-wide system. School starts this year on August 25th. Before school starts, parents need to know what supplies their children will need and when the bus will arrive to pick them up.
If you are the parent of a student in the Union County Public Schools, where can you find the answers to these questions?
When you are ready for back-to-school shopping, you should check out the website for your child’s school. Each of the schools in the Union County Public Schools has its own website. To find the site, go to the UCPS website, then click on Schools. You’ll find a list of schools and links to individual school websites.
Each school’s website has important announcements at the top of the page. Scroll through the announcements to find the supply lists for each grade at the school.
What about bus schedules? Union County has a fleet of over 300 buses that cover 29,000 miles per day. That adds up to over 5 million miles per year. The most densely populated school clusters have staggered schedules for the middle and high schools to reduce traffic around the schools.
Parents will receive bus stop times for their children in the mail in August. UCPS attempts to have a bus stop within 0.2 mile for elementary students and within 0.4 mile for middle and high school students.
