In Barrow County, the school district is offering an app for parents to track their kids’ bus routes. The “Here Comes the Bus” app will allow parents to track bus arrival times and locations.
The app is expected to roll out during first month of school. Barrow County is also still offering Chromebooks and internet hotspots at no costs to families.
Polk County School parents can also sign up for “Here Comes the Bus” app.
“Polk School District is excited to provide our families with an extra layer of communication and security through the Here Comes the Bus, school bus tracking application.”
Walton County families can receive assistance with purchasing school supplies. The district says it will use a portion of federal funds to purchase supplies for all students. WCSD says parents will only need to purchase a backpack and reusable water bottle for their children.
The district says the supply kits will be available for kindergarten through eighth grade on the first day of school Tuesday. More back to school information can be found here.
Thomaston-Upson County is also offering free school supplies for families. All students will receive their school supplies on the first day of school
