Dear parents and caregivers of Southport Middle School Students,
St. Lucie Public Schools and Southport Middle School are happy to announce the adoption of an innovative mobile device app and website entitled, Here Comes the Bus®.
Here Comes the Bus allows you to view the real-time location of your children’s school bus on your smartphone, tablet or computer. With it, you will have the information you need to send your children to the bus stop at just the right time, helping to protect them from inclement weather and other roadside dangers. What’s more, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your children haven’t missed the bus.
Here Comes the Bus is free for the 2017-18 school year and it enables you to:
• See the location of your children’s bus both before and after school
• Confirm that your children’s bus has arrived at the bus stop, at school or both
• Receive a push notification* or email message when the bus is a certain distance from your stop, and more
Here Comes the Bus is powered by Synovia Solutions™, makers of the GPS-tracking technology used by St. Lucie Public Schools and Southport Middle School to increase safety and cost savings as it relates to our school bus fleet.
Available in three languages (English, Spanish and French), the Here Comes the Bus app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play.
