HOKE COUNTY SCHOOLS RECEIVES NCDPI “GREEN RIBBON AWARD”

posted Feb 14, 2017, 7:19 AM by JODIE BRYANT

Hoke County Public Schools recently received the Green Ribbon School District Award from the North  Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) Safe and Healthy Schools Support Division and will now represent the state in national competition.
 
The U.S. Department of Education initiated the Green Ribbon Schools Award program in 2011 to honor schools and school districts that “exercise a comprehensive approach to creating ‘green’ environments through reducing environmental impact, promoting health, and ensuring a high-quality environmental and outdoor education to prepare students with the 21st century skills and sustainability concepts needed in the growing global economy.”
 
NCDPI Chief Financial Officer for Operations Ben Matthews congratulated district staff for being selected to represent North Carolina and wished them well in the national competition. “Hoke County schools’ staff and students are doing an exemplary job of reducing their environmental impact by providing green learning environments and showing students how to minimize their ecological footprints. These are lessons that will definitely pay forward,” he said.
 
The Green Ribbon Schools Award is the first comprehensive federal policy for schools related to environment, health and education. It describes a thoughtful vision for the nation’s schools, sets a high bar for success, and raises the profile of individual green schools and the states that encourage them.
 
National award recipients will be honored at a ceremony in Washington, D.C., in July. Visit the Green Ribbon Schools Award program website for more information.

HERE COMES THE BUS APP NOW AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD

posted Feb 14, 2017, 7:10 AM by JODIE BRYANT   [ updated Feb 14, 2017, 7:11 AM ]

Here Comes the Bus is an easy-to-use website and app that enables parents to see the location of their child’s school bus on a smartphone, tablet, or personal computer. This way, parents will know when the bus is near, so they can send their child out at just the right time. Here Comes the Bus uses global positioning system (GPS) technology to locate and track the school buses. It is powered by software from Synovia Solutions, which Hoke County Schools has been utilizing for the past two years. “Our top priority is ensuring that our students are transported to and from school safely,” said Tom Paris, Director of Transportation for Hoke County Schools. “We are constantly looking for innovative tools to improve how we serve students and communicate with parents. We are very excited to offer parents the ability to check 
on the location of their child’s bus in real time.” Here Comes the Bus will allow parents to customize a map and see the location of their child’s bus at any time, as well as choose what alerts they would like to receive and how they’d like to receive them. For instance, parents can receive a push notification or email alert when their child's bus is within five minutes of the bus stop. This feature is sure to be helpful on those cold or rainy mornings. Here Comes the Bus can be accessed for free through the Here Comes the Bus website or Google Play app store. The app is secure, with the district providing parents a private ID that grants access to only their child's bus.  To sign up, parents will need their  student’s ID number and the school code (73721).
