Students Walking

Walking Distances to Change
Starting August 2009, FCPS will return to the non-transported distances that were in place two years ago. 
The following Monocacy Middle School neighborhoods will be affected:
  • Clover Hill 2 –East
  • North Crossing
  • Willow Brook
The FCPS Transportation Department has re-evaluated pre-2007 walking paths to ensure consistency with the revised policy.
Some areas from which students were transported pre-2007 are now designated walking areas:
The FCPS Transportation Department suggests that students walking from Clover Hill 2-East, North Crossing, and Willow Brook use the recommended path listed below: 
  • Christopher Crossing
  • Left on Opossumtown Pike
  • Left on Rainbow Lane
  • Left on Lookout Lane
  • Left on Indian Summer Lane
  • Right on Morning Dew Lane
  • Right on Hayward Road
  • Left on Opossumtown Pike  

Because school office staffs are typically very familiar with their communities, FCPS asks parents to direct inquiries about non-transported areas to the school.
