    Brooklyn Center Community Schools launched an innovative app to keep students safe and families in the loop. The Here Comes the Bus mobile app allows students and families to know when their assigned school bus has entered the neighborhood. With a customizable map, users can see in real time exactly where their child’s bus is located. Users can also customize the Here Comes the Bus app to send notifications when the bus is near or if there has been a schedule change.

    The app is free to download and is available in the Apple App Store or in the Google Play store. Click here to learn more.
