New Bus App coming soon for NSD families
Posted on March 25
A new app will soon be available for NSD parents and guardians to use for monitoring a school bus status! The new app is called StopFinder. The engagement app allows parents and guardians to see their children’s bus schedules in real-time and receive bus cancellations or changes immediately. The Transportation Department and registered users stay connected by sending and receiving messages through the secure StopFinder app directly on their phone or tablet.
“This is another example of how we are better leveraging the use of technology,” said Dr. Nancy Spencer-Poitras, Superintendent of Schools. The StopFinder app is just another way we connect with our parents and guardians and enhance student safety.”
“Transportation plays an integral role in making sure students arrive safely, attend school regularly and achieve success,” said Robin Guild, Board Chair. “The Board appreciates the ongoing efforts made by NSD to better leverage technology to support student learning and engagement.”
The app will work alongside the Bus Status available on the NSD website https://www.nsd61.ca/departments/transportation/bus-status. Parents and guardians who have students riding a Northland/contract bus will receive an email in the coming months to download the app.
