As Central New York prepares for winter weather here are some helpful reminders for Liverpool Central School District parents and guardians.
During inclement weather, there are many factors that affect our buses and it is not uncommon for buses to run a few minutes late.
Parents can keep track of their child’s school bus through the Traversa Ride 360 app, which allows them to access their own secure data for bus stop location, route, and pick-up time.
Each Liverpool bus is now equipped with Tyler Drive GPS, and Ride 360 can use the GPS geolocation to let users know when to expect their bus each day and provide the district real-time data to enhance the safety and security of all students during transport.
Download the app in the Apple or Google Play app stores, or visit the Traversa Ride 360 Web site.
Students still need to be at the bus stop on time, even in the coldest of weather. If the students are not out, the bus cannot wait because that would delay the route for everyone else. Please also have your child dressed appropriately for the weather.
If schools are delayed or closed, that information is posted on the LCSD Web site immediately, usually before 6 a.m., and announced using the ParentSquare (e-mail and text message) service.
It is important that your contact information is up-to-date in our student information system so that you can receive notices from ParentSquare in the event school is closed, delayed or dismissed early. Please contact your school building if your contact information has changed.
In addition, local television stations will announce the delays or closings live on TV and on their Web sites.
No matter what the weather please remember that if you encounter a school bus with its red lights flashing you must stop. There will be children entering or exiting the bus... let’s keep them safe!
On certain rare occasions, emergency conditions, such as impending storms, may necessitate dismissal of students before regular school closing time.
In such an event, efforts will be made to have the emergency closing posted on the Web site and announced via ParentSquare and local television stations.
