Communications & Must-Have Apps

We hear you, Spartans! In the past, there has been information coming to families from too many different platforms. The district has made a concerted effort to streamline communications as much as possible. What apps do you need? Visit our communications page for an overview! 

There is one VERY IMPORTANT TO-DO: Download the BPS App on Apple or Android if you do not already have it and be sure your notification preferences are set.


The district will continue with Ride 360/Traversa for the 23-24 school year. Families with a bus rider should download the Ride 360 App. The app is free via Google Play or Apple Store. Routing information will be available beginning 8/3. For now, families should simply download the app, login, and add their student(s) in preparation for the school year.

Child Nutrition

BPS encourages ALL families to complete the free/reduced lunch application, especially if you may qualify. This impacts our eligibility for various funding in our schools! Everything from technology, student remediation, transportation, professional development for teachers, and even the district’s ability to receive grants depends upon the completion of these applications by families who may qualify.

If students would like to enjoy a school meal or something extra via a la carte, they will need to pay cash or have money on their MySchoolBucks account. For questions or concerns, please contact the child nutrition department at 918-366-2214 or 918-366-2391.
