HERE COMES THE BUS

Here Comes The Bus uses global positioning system (GPS) technology to locate and track your child's school bus.  It is powered by software from Synovia Solutions and uses data uploaded every evening from our TIMS Department.  If your student has been assigned to the bus, you can download the free app to your phone and get notifications when the bus is near to your residence or to the school your student attends. You will need your student's Powerschool ID number and the school code 82346.  You can get started by clicking on the following link:
