If your child is missing any personal items that you believe may have been left on their school bus, please contact Director of Transportation Chris Storer either by phone at 694-9353, or by email at email@example.com
Families may now locate their child’s bus schedule at either the Traversa Ride 360 website (link and instructions below) or through the Traversa Ride 360 smartphone app (available at your app store).
Please note: You will need to know each child's PowerSchool student number and birthdate. To find your child's PowerSchool Student Number, log in to the parent portal, click on “Forms” in the left sidebar, and then click on the first form (01- 2022-2023 Returning Student Address). The PowerSchool Student Number will be found at the top of the form. While you're in the portal you may want to update the five forms for each child for the upcoming school year.

Please note two important characteristics of the Ride 360 program:
1. Bus routes will now be designated by Bus Number. Colors such as “Red Line” or “Yellow Line” will no longer be used. Numbers will be clearly displayed on the sides of each bus. To reduce confusion, we have large magnetic numbers on hand in the event a bus is taken out of service, requiring a replacement for the day.
2. For security purposes, your Ride 360 access is restricted to the student(s) associated with your PowerSchool account. Only individuals with an active PowerSchool account can access the Ride 360 system.
NOTE: This program only allows you to identify your child’s bus number and the scheduled pick-up and drop-off times for each run. We do not yet have the GPS systems on our buses that allow for real-time notifications of bus location, though we are hopeful to include that upgrade in the operating budget for the 2023-2024 school year. When that occurs, families will be able to see the location of their child’s bus using the app, but that is not a service we are able to provide this year – which is why some of you have noticed that the app currently says the buses are not running even though we know they are in operation.
If you have any questions about this process – or any other transportation-related concerns – please reach out to our new Transportation Supervisor, Mr. Chris Storer by calling 207.846.2338 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
