MyStop gives parents and students access to live bus GPS info

MyStop is a web-based application available to all Eastern Carver County Schools parents and students that lets them access live bus GPS information. Using a smartphone, tablet or desktop computer, parents and students can view the current location of buses on routes and the estimated time of arrival at their neighborhood bus stops. This simple and informative tool gives parents, guardians and students the ability to know approximately where the school bus is on its route. MyStop displays the school bus’s approximate location on a map, as well as the estimated time of arrival (ETA) to a specific student’s bus stop. The school bus’s location is automatically updated every few minutes, and the ETA is recalculated to accommodate any delays due to traffic while the bus is en route. Please note: does not work for after-school activity routes since there are no students assigned to them and no set stops.

Families volunteer to water the garden throughout the summer and often bring the fresh produce to local food shelves. When students come back to school, they spend time in STEAM classes exploring the garden and the changes they’ve observed since spring. Teachers from a variety of studies, including science, social studies, math/engineering, etc., often creatively incorporate the...
