Bus Information to be shared on Remind

A Message from the Superintendent
Posted on 12/21/2018
This is the image for the news article titled A Message from the SuperintendentDear Parents,
We want to let you know that we are still working through a bus driver shortage and ask for your continued patience as we work toward securing more drivers for the coming year. We want to make you aware that our drivers many times run double routes causing a delay in pick up times in the morning and drop off times in the afternoon.

We will still be experiencing delays during the spring semester. Because of the shortage, we have very few sub drivers to fill in if one of our regular route drivers calls in sick. If your child’s bus is running a little late in the morning or afternoon, please know that we will be there as soon as possible. As always, our ultimate goal is to get your children to school and back home safely.

To keep you informed about changes or delays, the Devine ISD Transportation Department will be using Remind to send important information to you regarding your child’s bus route. A separate class code has been set up for each bus route. You will only receive messages for the route that you have signed up for.

Joining my class on Remind is easy. You can choose whether you prefer text messages or smartphone notifications. See chart below to find the class code for your route.

Signing up for text messages:
1. From your phone, text @[CLASS CODE] to the phone number 81010
Example: If your child rides bus #022 you would text @horse22 to 81010
2. Reply to the text messages from the Remind team.

Signing up for smartphone notifications:
1. Download the Remind app on your Android or iOS device. Click here to go to the Remind website for a link to the apps. 
2. Open the app and create an account (or log in if you already have one).
3. Tap the + by classes joined and enter my class code @[CLASS CODE].

That's all you need to do to start receiving messages!
