Stopfinder ImageBus Route Information

Hempstead ISD uses Spotfinder! as our bus routing software. Bus routes and stop locations may be accessed through the use of the Spotfinder! tool. To use this tool parents/guardians must have an email address on file with the school district. If you do not have an email address on file, please contact your campus registrar. 

Estimated bus stop times are available through the Stopfinder! tool. During the first few days of school, it is recommended that students are ready at the bus stop approximately 10 minutes prior to the estimated stop time until regular route schedules are established. Please be aware that bus routes and schedules may be modified as the school year continues in order to best meet the needs of our students.
