Coldwater Community Schools recently purchased ZONARr for our transportation department, which includes an electronic verification of school bus safety inspections, GPS location devices, and ZPass, which is a way to keep track of the students who ride on Coldwater Community Schools buses. This will help our transportation department keep attendance of those students each day, making our busses even safer for our kids!
Your child will receive their ZPass during the Transportation Open House (scheduled for Thursday, August 5, 2021 from 10 AM-12 PM and 5-8 PM at Lakeland Elementary School, 235 Western Ave.). This is required to ride Coldwater Community Schools Transportation to and from school. A student will not be allowed to ride after 3 consecutive days without a ZPass. Parents, please help ensure this ZPass card stays securely fastened to their backpack. Each day, please encourage your son or daughter to follow the bus rules and to scan their card as they are getting on and off the school bus. The first ZPass will be provided; a $5 fee will be incurred for each replacement card during the school year.
If you have any questions, feel free to call the Transportation Department at 517-279-5950.
