ZPass Plus

Safety is the top priority within our commitment to providing safe and efficient transportation to over

75,000 students every day. A crucial part of this service is knowing when and where each child gets on and off the school bus. ZPass allows parents to receive notifications when their child enters and exits the school bus.

How ZPass Works

  1. Students place their ZPass Multipurpose Card in front of the card reader as they enter and exit the school bus.

  2. The card reader emits an audible beep confirming the card was read.

  3. The time, date and location of where the student gets on and off the bus are immediately recorded to a secure database, accessible only by transportation and school officials.

  4. Parents can sign up for instant notifications, via push or cell phone text messaging and/or email.

  5. Parents can sign up for notifications by going to https://www.zpassplus.com/. ZPass + app is available at Google Play and the App Store.

  6. Badge replacement fees: $3.00 for bus badge and $1.00 for lanyard.

SPIRIT WEAR

Show your Labrador spirit every Friday by wearing a Labrador T-Shirt. New "All Star Labradors" themed shirts may be purchased for $10.


The order form can be printed and sent to school with payment with your child.
