New Mobile App

The Van Buren R-1 School District is proud to announce that we are launching a new mobile app that helps students, parents, and community members know what is happening on campus, right from their phones. We know that families are using smartphones as a primary means to communicate. That’s why we’ve created an app that is custom-built for mobile. On the app, you can find athletic schedules, contact information for staff, documents, menus, and the school calendar. Anyone can download the app for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play by searching for Van Buren R-1 School District or by clicking on these links:  Android: or iPhone:

The Three Main Benefits of the new App:

1) Know what’s going on at school.
Ex: Find real-time updates from the website’s live feed about stories happening inside the classroom or at sporting events.

2) Connect with teachers and administrators.
Ex: Access staff contact information, and quickly find out about district news.

3) Stay up-to-date with school information.
Ex: Receive updates about events occurring on campus, documents, required forms, and even emergency notifications
