Know When Your Kids Get Home Safe

WAUSAU, WI (WAOW) -- There is a new app in town to help you know when your kids are home safe.

It's called First View -- and it's for parents in the Wausau School District whose kids take first- student and Metro Ride buses.

First View is in partnership with First Student and the school district.

Parents can track a bus on its route, view scheduled stop times and track multiple student's stops. They can also set up push alerts on their phone or desktop for when the bus is a certain time or distance away. Users can also track up to three student's stops.

The school district tested the app with a small group of parents before the launch and received great reviews. More than 100 parents downloaded the app just today.

The app can be used for morning and afternoon riders. It is the Wausau School District’s attempt to give guardians peace of mind when their students are on their way to school or on their way back home.
