Parent Input Needed

Please Take Our Parent Satisfaction Survey

District Families,

Our district is on a continuous journey to make our schools the best places for students to learn, staff to work, and parents to send their children for a good education. In this effort, we appreciate your support. It is important to gather feedback from you to celebrate successes and identify areas for growth. Please take a few minutes and complete this Parent Satisfaction Survey to help provide this feedback.

Once the survey is complete, the results will be analyzed by an outside organization. The data from the survey will be sent to each school and the Superintendent. Then, the results of the survey will be shared with parents and the community.

The survey can be accessed online at: Estacada School District Parent Satisfaction Survey.

The survey will be open from 11/04 – 11/26/2019.

Thank you for interest in and support of your child’s education with us. Please contact me if you have any questions concerning the survey.

Safe Stop - a new tool for families

Estacada School District Families,

The Estacada School District is introducing a new program- SafeStop- to our district to provide families with increased communication and notifications regarding bus pick up and drop off times. SafeStop's phone app can also notify families each time a student scans on or off the bus. In the event of a bus breakdown or poor road conditions, our district transportation team can send a notification about the delay through the SafeStop app. There is no charge to use the app. Your student will be coming home with a SafeStop ID badge this week. This is what students will use to scan on and off of the bus.

Steps to begin using the SafeStop app.
1) Register with SafeStop. Have your child's student identification number ready. The student ID can be found in PowerSchool.
2) Download the SafeStop app at the end of the registration process. You can also download the SafeStop app in the official Apple or Android app stores.
3) Download the SafeStop user guide (linked below) to help get you started. Additional resources are located below as well.

Only student guardians will be provided with access to this information. Your student's privacy is important to us. We are excited to offer this tool that can increase convenience and communication when it comes to district transportation.

Student SafeStop Usage

We recommend that students secure their ID badge to a backpack or bag to ensure that they have it with them every time they ride the bus. Students will need to scan on and off of the bus. Bus drivers will assist in guiding them through this process.

Welcome To SafeStop
