    This message is for families that have a student riding the bus to and/or from school.

    My Stop is a web-based application now available to all Unit 5 parents to access live bus GPS information using a smartphone, tablet or computer to securely view the current location of their child’s bus on routes to and from school. The system also provides the school bus’s estimated time of arrival at your child’s bus stop.

    The new MyStop tracking software is integrated with the District’s computerized bus routing system and the GPS devices installed on every bus. Data integration takes the student’s bus route information and overlays it onto a map that tracks the actual location of a student’s school bus to the designated pick-up/drop-off point.

    A parent can only view information related to their child(ren) using a secure login and password.

    Information on how to access My Stop for your student is attached
