FirstView Bus App

In continued partnership with our transportation provider, First Student, we are pleased to announce the availability of a new bus tracking and transportation communications app for your smartphone.  District 28 is one of several school districts in the nation to partner with First Student to launch the FirstView App, which has been in development and testing since the beginning of the school year.

FirstView provides several features designed to help parents and students monitor their bus route, including:

 *   Live Tracking

 *   Predictive Stop Arrival Times

 *   Custom Alerts and Messages

 *   Multi-Stop View

 *   Dedicated Customer Support

Get Started!

To get started with the FirstView App, see a video demo by visiting FirstViewapp.com

Download the App through Google Play or the Apple App Store.

Custom Alerts and Messages When setting up the App, you will be prompted to:

 *   Select your state (Illinois)

 *   Select your district (Glenbrook—we are paired with the high school).

 *   Your student’s ID number. (if you don't know your student's ID number, please contact your school administrative assistant)
If you have a question regarding the route or stop assignment, please contact Dan Fritsche (847) 724-7200 or via email.

For questions about the App, contact FirstView Monday-Friday by:

    *   Calling (888) 889-8920 from 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.;

    *   Emailing Customer Support at support@firstviewapp.com or

    *   Using the in-app “!” button to provide feedback.

 We hope all of our students and parents will find this tool to be a great resource!
