Good afternoon Cougar Country

In an effort to prepare for next year, we need all families to complete the DPS  Back to School Form so that you can register for bus transportation, confirm your contact information, and more. You can find instructions on the DPS website at, or you can come by our school support event at Carrington on April 20 from 5:30 - 6:30pm for help filling out the form. If you cannot attend but need to schedule an appointment for assistance, please call Carrington at 919-560-3916.  Again, this is very important to ensure that your child has bus transportation lined up for next year, in addition to other important information.  All transportation requests will be reset and all families will need to complete this form to secure transportation for next year.
