Dear SMSA Parents/Guardians of bus riding students:

The FDL School District and Johnson School Bus are happy to announce that the My Stop app is
now active. It is an amazing tool that allows parents and students to view routing information,
including the location of the bus during the route. Click Here to view the instructions for
downloading the My Stop app.

Your student(s) ID number is located in Skyward under Family Access, on your student’s profile
page. The path or steps for finding this student-specific number is

  • Login to Family Access;
  • Click the Student Information tab;
  • Select “View Bus Schedule” located next to your child’s picture;
  • View the bus number.

This number is different than the student/”Other ID#” in SMSA Skyward. Parents will need to
use this student-specific number to access their child’s My Stop account for the first time only. You will then be prompted to assign your own number.

If parents need assistance logging in to the app, they can contact Johnson School Bus (920) 921-
3003 or Wendy Burgess at the FDL District office (920) 906-6524.
Kindest Regards,

Kelly Norton, President

St. Mary’s Springs Academy
