Spring ISD is introducing a new scanner system on all of its buses for the 2021-22 school year that will give added peace of mind to parents by allowing them to know when and where their student gets on and off the bus.
Students carry a small card that automatically logs their entry or exit when they pass the scanner on the school bus. The information is then instantly and securely available to parents. Notifications can also be sent directly to their computer or cell phone via text message.
By downloading the free MyView app, parents will have an easy-to-use mobile app to check on their child's school bus. MyView uses GPS data provided by the Zonar V4 telematics control unit to track and display that bus's location on an aerial map, powered by Google—all in near real-time. Parents can create and set alerts to let them know when the bus enters their neighborhood or gets close to the drop-off point, which is especially helpful on bad weather days.In addition, these cards will have a dual purpose to allow students to scan at the Point of Sale in the cafeteria lines, adding convenience and efficiency for both parents and child nutrition workers.
Set up Zonar MyView:
- Download the Zonar MyView app from the App Store or Google Play.
- Enter the School Access Code 77090.
- Enter your child’s unique student ID.
- Create alert zones around drop-off and pick-up points.
When your child’s bus enters an alert zone, you will
receive notification by email or text.
