Registration and Information

All students who want to take the bus to and/or from school need to register. To learn more about busing in Northern Lights Public Schools and to register, please visit the Transportation Section of the Northern Lights website. 

The Bus Status App

You want to stay on top of any busing delays or cancellations, and we want you to, too. Northern Lights Public Schools uses the Box Clever Bus Status App to give parents and caregivers a simple and accessible way to make sure they're notified of any changes in the status of their students' bus routes immediately. The app is available on the App Store for Apple devices and the Google Play Store for Android devices.

The Bus Status App allows you to always know and keep track of any busing delays or cancellations, and receive push notifications for just the bus routes that matter to you. The Bus Status App replaces the NLSD-2-GO app used in the past.

School Messenger

Northern Lights Public Schools also sends out emergency busing notifications and other important messages from the Division and school levels via School Messenger. School Messenger allows schools, and teachers, to send messages to parents and/or students using the contact information they provided to the school when they registered. This includes automated attendance notifications when students aren't at school and their absence hasn't already been reported by a parent or guardian. It can also include general messages from your child's teacher, school or division such as newsletters and information on upcoming events. The messages can be sent as voice messages to your phone(s), as email messages or as text messages.
