General Information


Bus Routes

At Laytonsville Elementary School, each school bus route is assigned a color code name. Most students and LES staff members refer to the school buses by their color names, (the Red bus, the Purple bus, etc.), rather than by the route numbers. However, when calling the school or the MCPS Department of Transportation with a question or concern about your child's bus, it is helpful to provide the bus (route) number, as well as the LES bus color code.

Listed here are the MCPS bus routes which service Laytonsville Elementary School and the LES color code names for each. Detailed information about each route, including timing and location of scheduled stops, is provided in the MCPS School Bus Routes (19 KB PDF) document.
