There are two ways to access My Stop:
  • the web address is: mystop.staffordschools.net
  • smart phone users can find an app in the App Store or the Play Store. 
This app allows parents to see an icon moving on a green route.  The icon represents the actual location of the bus within two to four minutes.  Arrival times at the bottom of the screen will automatically recalculate if the bus is running late.  Directions for My Stop can be found using the link below.  Read More...
