NEW!  Bus Tracking App – ParentView

Pendleton School District, along with First Student, is excited to announce the launching of ParentView, a bus tracking and parent communication app.

Highlights include:

  • Track your student’s bus in real-time for their AM and PM bus routes.
  • Set up a geofence at your student’s stop and get alerts when the bus has entered that specific geofence. You are able to customize the geofence size and alert times to let you be in control of your notifications.
  • Track multiple students as well as multiple bus routes all on the same map on the app.

When setting up your account, you will need your student’s ID (lunch number) and bus route number.

I recently transferred from Gresham First Student to Pendleton as the safety manager. I have almost 30 years of experience in training, safety, management, fire/ems, and student transportation. I look forward to serving the community where I grew up as a child. Safety is always our first priority here at First Student.

I’ve lived in Pendleton and the surrounding areas for over 20 years, and I’ve been a transportation dispatcher for the last 4 ½ years. I moved to First Student at the end of the 2022 school year, and I look forward to bringing more safety, communication options, and technology to the Pendleton community.
