Where’s the school bus?
Please note, the MyStop app - used to track your school bus - will not be working as we begin the school year.
By the start of Semester 2 all buses in the district will be equipped with a new technology that will fix problems with GPS connectivity by installing a tablet on each bus. Tablets have been ordered, but are currently backlogged and not expected to arrive until November or December.
Once installed, the tablets will replace paper route sheets bus drivers use and provide turn-by-turn directions - a much safer way for them to navigate unfamiliar routes. Tablets will also provide a fast and efficient way to identify who is riding the bus and to ensure students make it safely to school and home. The new system will also improve the MyStop app, making it more reliable for families to know where their school bus is located and what time it is expected at their stop.
In the meantime, we will provide you with updates via email or phone message if there are significant disruptions to your routes. You can also stay up-to-date on any busing delays or changes in service on Twitter @SchoolBus834.
