HERE COMES THE BUS APP IS AVAILABLE
On March 4, the Cobb Schools Transportation Department rolled out the new “Here Comes the Bus” app so parents can track their child’s bus in real-time on a map. The Cobb Schools Transportation Department transports more than 70,000 students via about 1,000 school buses every day. Now every parent will know exactly where the specific bus carrying their child is at on the route to and from school. In addition to giving scheduled and actual arrival times for home and school, the app will also provide push and email notifications when the bus is near. So, thanks to the bus app, Cobb parents will know when the bus enters their neighborhood.
To ease stress in the mornings and afternoons, download the bus app in the Apple App Store, get it on Google Play, or visit herecomesthebus.com and use SCHOOL CODE 87881 (you will need your student's school ID for initial setup of student profile.

SAFE SCHOOLS APP IS AVAILABLE
Students, staff members, and parents are now able to report safety concerns from anywhere, at any time, via the new SafeSchools Alert tip line. Every tip submitted through the SafeSchools Alert will be immediately logged and routed to the appropriate administrator to investigate and take appropriate action.
Each member of our school family can easily report tips, anonymously if desired, on bullying, harassment, drugs, vandalism, threats of violence, or other safety issues of concern.
Students, staff members, and parents can submit a tip to the SafeSchools Alert via the app (download free), web, phone, email, or text. When submitting a tip, include the Cobb County School District identification code 1760 in order to designate the tip as related to Cobb Schools.
The SafeSchools Alert tip line does not replace 911. For emergencies, please dial 911.
“We are seeking information that can allow the school to better address the school climate issues that cause students anxiety or fear and are not being addressed because people are afraid to share the information,” explained Cobb County School District Police Officer Phil Bradford. “We are trying to become more aware of what is going on. We are asking for information from all quarters of the school so we can become preventive, and we can be more proactive.”
If you have information about a threat to our safety, do your part and report! And remember, you can remain anonymous.
Download the SafeSchools Alert app today for free in the Apple App Store or get it on Google Play.
The SafeSchools Alert builds on the Cobb County School District’s robust safety program, which includes the revolutionary emergency notification system, AlertPoint. To learn more about how the Cobb County School District keeps students and staff safe, please visit www.cobbshield.com
