As we begin the new school year, many of our families are signing up for our school bus notification system, Here Comes the Bus. Some families have experienced errors when trying to set up their account when they type in their student's last name and student ID.
Instead of the student ID, the parent needs to type in the student's lunch pin, which can be found in their Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Do not use the student ID, but rather the lunch pin.
Steps for Families
- Log into the app with your email address and use the District 196 ID: 73500
- Add your student’s name and student lunch account number, which can be found in their Infinite Campus profile. (If your child is in Early Childhood Education, contact the Transportation to get a temporary lunch account number. Email Transportation@district196.org.)
- Once login is complete, set up a virtual radius that will alert when the bus is in the area.
