Welcome to the Parent Information Center (PIC)
The Parent Information Center (PIC) serves as a support system for all families in Waltham Public Schools.
The PIC makes information about the schools more accessible to families and can assist with questions on topics such as new student registrations, in-district transfers, student withdrawals, student work permits, school transportation, school district boundaries and redistricting, bus and walk boundaries, before and after-school programs, summer programs, child-care and preschool providers, parent involvement opportunities, and translation services.

The Transportation Office is responsible for creating efficient transportation for the school community.
Central Office is responsible for the day-to-day functions and administration of all school bus services. Bus routes are based on student enrollment and eligibility and may vary each school year. Students are assigned to bus stops as determined by their residence and in order to ensure accountability for all our students, assigned buses and stops must be strictly adhered to. It is the district's practice that bus arrangements for eligible students are managed at the school building level and must be followed as the safety and security of our students is of utmost importance. Additional information is published in the Student Handbooks.
