WE ARE GETTING READY FOR OUR STUDENTS' RETURN!

We’re happy to announce that St. Helena Parish School District will be launching an innovative transportation solution, BusView, for our school buses which provides the following:

  • GPS tracking for buses
  • Student monitoring via Student RFID cards
  • Provides parents real-time student transportation details
  • Supporting ParentView app

BusView monitors bus location, speed, turns and other key bus metrics, as well as where / when students board and exit buses in real-time. This enables us to closely monitor buses to know where they are along routes and to proactively respond to all transportation issues. It also provides peace of mind for parents, as no more worrying if your kids made it on the correct bus or got off at the correct stops.

There is also a free app for parents, which enables parents to see when their child boards and exits buses with time and location stamps. Parents will be able to request bus changes or schedule parent pick-up for their child(ren). Plus, when buses travel out-of-town (sports, field trips, etc.), parents can receive push notifications via the ParentView app to get approximate return-time notifications.

ParentView is very user-friendly and is available in English and Spanish. To download the free app please go here:

Once you’ve downloaded the app on your phone, you will be prompted to register with St. Helena Parish School District. Please provide the following information when registering (if you have multiple children riding buses, please click Add-Children to register each child):

  • Your child’s school campus
  • Student ID Number
  • Date of Birth · 4 Digit Code – (IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE AN EMAIL WITH THIS CODE PLEASE EMAIL Transportation@sthpk- 12.net TO REQUEST YOUR CHILD/CHILDREN CODE(S)

We will be ready when our students return to our campuses! If you have any questions, please contact the school district transportation department via email at Transportation@sthpk-12.net.
