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. Learn more about MyStop and how to download the app on the district’s Transportation... Continue reading MyStop gives parents and students access to live bus GPS info

17-18 School Year Highlights

Our 5th graders had so much fun at Track and Field day at Chaska High School. Some highlights include: tug of war, 1st place in boys relay race and cheering on our La Academia classmates with our school song! On Friday, May 11th, Kinder Academy hosted their spring concert.  Ms. Mennicke directed the concert where students displayed their talents through singing and dancing.  Many families attended and enjoyed a sweet treat with their student after the concert. 4th graders enjoyed a day exploring the History of Minnesota and then witnessing the Capitol in present day action. First grade students took a field trip to Gale Woods Farm to finish up their unit on animal life cycles. They learned about and interacted with all aspects of the farm including the garden, greenhouse, and the animals: sheep, sheepdogs, cows, chickens, roosters, pigs, and cats! Third grade students had the opportunity to attend the Festival of Nations this May. The students were able to discuss what they had... Continue reading 17-18 School Year Highlights
