Bus Statuses

The arrival of winter weather inevitably brings cold, snowy mornings that leave many FVSD families wondering whether school buses are running late or running at all.

Keeping tabs on the school buses operated by the Fort Vermilion School Division has never been easier, with the introduction of a free iPhone and Android app. The app, available now at App Store, gives you as parents the opportunity to select your own child’s route and then receive push notifications to your smartphone if that route is delayed or cancelled.

You can search iTunes for “Fort Vermilion School District Bus Status” or simply visit the FVSD website at http://www.fvsd.ab.ca from your Smartphone and you’ll automatically be prompted to connect to iTunes or Google Play to download the app.

If you don’t have a Smartphone, you can keep tabs on your child’s bus by visiting your school website or FVSD’s website at http://www.fvsd.ab.ca.

With winter weather coming, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing the status of your child’s school bus with current information updates. Once downloaded and you have opened the app, you will see the entire list of all of our buses. From this list, you can “star” the bus that your children ride and you will begin receiving push notifications on your phone when we do an update to the status of any of the buses you have selected. This will eliminate you being notified when there is a change to any of the other buses in our Division, it will only notify you regarding the ones you star as “My Buses”.  You can select more than one bus if you happen to have students riding more than one FVSD bus.

The bus status will display one of 3 options: 1) On Time (Green Banner) – the default status when everything is running as it should,  2) Delayed (Yellow Banner) – When a bus is running late, if known, it will display the approximate amount of time the bus is running behind schedule, or which bus # is being sent in its place,  3) Cancelled (Red Banner) – If a bus route is cancelled entirely with no plans to pick up the students that day.

We trust this will be a quick and efficient way of updating families if there are unscheduled changes to your student’s bus ride.

We will continue to provide the updates on our twitter feed @fvsdbuses for those who wish to follow us in that manner.  There is also provision to receive each of our twitter updates via text message.  

Feel free to contact the Bus Garage at 780-928-3860 if you need further assistance with subscribing to any of these update methods.
