Parents and Guardians,
The City of Baker School System has a new online tool for parents and guardians who want to keep track of their child's bus.
The district has partnered with BusWhere, a location tracking service app that allows parents and guardians to track the location of your child's bus in real-time on your phones and to receive a notification when the bus is approaching your child's bus stop.
Families simply sign up on and download the free BusWhere app on their Android or iOS devices after receiving instructions to track the bus and view ETAs at nearby stops.Parents and guardians with the app will receive a notification when the bus is getting close to your child's designated stop, which is especially helpful when the weather outside is inclement.Access to your child's account is secured with a login and controlled centrally by the City of Baker School System transportation department to ensure that only authorized parties can view the bus's location.
Nicole Butler
3rd Grade ELA Teacher
Ms. Nicole Michelle Butler is the third grade English Language Arts teacher at Baker Heights Elementary School.  She also teaches Social Studies. Butler has served as a teacher and reading interventionist at the City of Baker Schools for the last nine years.  
Ms. Butler is a life-long resident of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  She is the oldest of three siblings.  Butler says she has always wanted to be a teacher.  To pursue her dream, she attended and graduated from Southern University. 
Butler was selected as the Teacher of the Year because of the many contributions she has made to Baker Heights.  Her love for reading and to helping students learn to read is evident in her dedication.  Butler arrives early to prepare for the day ahead, makes her copies, and gathers all her materials ready to receive her students daily.  She rarely misses a day out of school, and she works tirelessly from "bell to bell."  When asked to receive other students or to help in any way during the school day, she does so graciously.  
Congratulations to Ms. Butler, BHES Teacher of the Year, 2022-23.
