To add a student to your Here Comes the Bus (HCTB) account using the app, follow these steps:
- Log in to HCTB. (See Logging In to Here Comes the Bus for details, if needed.)
The Here Comes the Bus Home screen will appear.
- Tap Students.
The Students screen will appear and display the names of the students currently in your account.
- Tap Add Student.
The Add Student dialog box will appear.
SCHOOL DISTRICTS REQUIRING PINS
If your district requires you to enter a PIN (personal identification number) in order to add a student to your HCTB account, the Add Student dialog box will look like this:
In step 4 below, you'll need to also type the PIN the school provided you with.
Note: You won't need the PIN again (unless your student is deleted from your account and you need to add them again later), as logging in doesn't require it.
- Type the student's last name and student ID.
Caution: Make sure to type JUST the last name! A common mistake parents make is to type both the first and last name here, which will result in an error.
A success message will be displayed, and the new student's name will appear in the Students list.
To add another student, repeat steps 3 through 6.
