Parent Tools - The Bus Status App

You want to stay on top of any busing delays or cancellations, and we want you to, too. Northern Lights Public Schools uses the Box Clever Bus Status App to give parents and caregivers a simple and accessible way to make sure they're notified of any changes in the status of their students' bus routes immediately. The app is available on the App Store for Apple devices and the Google Play Store for Android devices. 

The Bus Status App allows you to keep track of any busing delays or cancellations, and receive push notifications for just the bus routes that matter to you. 

What if I don't have a smartphone?

Not to worry, we don't rely on a single tool to communicate with you!

Bus drivers will attempt to contact parents directly when buses are cancelled.

You can also check real-time bus statuses and view any delays or cancellations on the homepage or Bus Status page of the Northern Lights Public Schools website, or you can check your students' school website for a filtered list of busing information. 

We also send out messages to parents using School Messenger. This may include an automated phone call, email or text message.

We may also post information about bus or class cancellations on the Northern Lights Facebook Page and the Northern Lights Public Schools Bus Updates Facebook group, so be sure to like and follow us on Facebook or join the group.
