NEW MOBILE APP FOR FAMILIES
Starting in December 2021, charter school families will be invited to subscribe to the ReaXium Mobile App to access their children’s routing information, as well as to receive notifications about student boarding, estimated pick-up times, and more. See details in the sidebar for more information about the app and how to get started.
**PLEASE READ: NEW COVID-19 TRANSPORTATION REGULATIONS**
In an effort to support social distancing guidelines, due to Covid -19, the following has been added to our standard transportation policies for all riders. We will be limited to transporting 22 students on a school bus. If your child is selected or not selected to ride you will be notified via e mail. This policy will continue until social distancing guidelines are changed or eliminated.
- must come to the bus with a face mask and wear the face mask for the entire trip
- must stand six feet apart while waiting or entering the school bus
- load to the rear of the bus first
- exiting the bus will begin from the front, remaining six feet apart
- seating will be one student per row, not designated with an “X”
- students living in the same household will sit in the same row, not taking into account seats marked with an “X”
- must remain in their seat for the entire route.
- changing seats or sitting with another rider will not be permitted unless from the same household
- students who are disruptive during the trip, not wearing masks, changing seats or any other non-conformance issue will be reported to school administrative personnel which may result in relegating the student to e-learning from home.
Please note: Pick up and drop off times and location remain the same as previously determined. In the event that pick up and drop off time changes, due to student bus riding participation, you will be notified.
**Subject to change based on guidance from Broward County Schools and Health Department**
NEW MOBILE APP FOR FAMILIES
Dear Parents, Guardians & Families,
We realize how essential it is for you to be connected with your children while on the school bus. When it comes to student safety, it all begins on the school bus trip to school. Our commitment is to keep the yellow school bus the safest ride for your children! For this reason, the City of Pembroke Pines Charter Schools has been working closely with ReaXium to provide parents and legal guardians the best tools to monitor their children with ease. Once subscribed, you will be able to:
- Monitor your students’ status
- Get notified of unforeseen changes
- Track the bus location
- Ensure the right bus & stop
How To Get Started?
1. Check your Email Inbox
The app is only accessible by authorized parents and guardians. If your child is a registered charter school student, you should have received an invitation code and the app's link via email. If you have not received an email, you can still get on board and request a code by clicking here.
Once you have received your unique, secure invitation code, copy it and click here to launch the app and finish registering. The app is mobile-friendly. You may use the app on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. Make sure to save the App icon to your smartphone’s home screen for easy access every time!
3. You are on board!
After choosing the subscription plan that fits your family members' needs you are good to go! Invite any other trusted persons under your plan to make sure everyone who needs to can stay connected to your child’s transportation information and updates.
How Do We Make This Happen?
Drivers will have buses outfitted with a device to guide them during the trip and notify them of the right stop and student roster. When the bus arrives at a stop or at school; students will “check-in” or “check-out” at the device with their RFID-enabled school IDs to ensure they have safely arrived.
Families need to make sure their children take their badges every day.
Each student is issued a badge with RFID technology. It is important because with their badge bus riders will be able to check-in and out when boarding and leaving the bus. App users will have access to their particular student & assigned bus information and real-time updates through the ReaXium Parents App.
For assistance with the ReaXium Parents App, you can email email@example.com

Transportation Services - information for Parents/Guardians
There is no charge for transportation service as follows:
Elementary and Middle: students that live two miles to three and one half miles from school, including the City of Miramar.
High School: students that live two miles from school, to most City locations, including the City of Miramar.
Please be advised that there is no need to complete the Transportation Request Form if your child is a current bus rider and attends the same campus as last year.
If your child is attending the same campus as last year, the Bus Route, Stop and Pickup/Drop off times remain the same.
For example: West Elementary and Middle School or Central Elementary and Middle School
Stop times are estimates since driving time can be effected by weather or street conditions. Please have your child at the bus stop 10 to 15 minutes prior to pick up time. If you meet your child at the bus stop, please arrive there 10 minutes before the scheduled drop off time. If someone generally meets your child at the stop and is not there at the time of drop off, the driver will return your child to their school.
