We are pleased to announce that our school district is providing a new smart phone app to help you receive more information about your child’s school bus ride. The app, called EDULOG PARENT PORTAL LITE, allows you to see real time information about the location of your child’s school bus and to receive notifications when the bus is getting close.
Your child’s safety and security are most important to us and we want you to have peace of mind knowing that the bus arrived at school, or at the bus stop in the afternoon. And we know that time is precious in the morning and you need to know when the bus is approaching. The app does this.
Our school buses are now equipped with GPS to help our transportation department locate buses as necessary for routine maintenance and to provide assistance in the event of traffic or weather-related issues. That same GPS signal reaches the app so you have information about your child’s bus.
You can set alert zones at the school and surrounding your neighborhood to receive notification on your phone when the bus arrives in that area. The size of notification area, the time period when you want notifications and the number of alert zones is up to you.
