Notice Alternative Bus Routes
As a district we pride ourselves on safely transporting students. As inclement weather challenges the safety of our students and drivers the district may have to implement alternative bus routes as school remains in session. These alternative routes will be implemented when road conditions prevent buses from safely traveling on their normal routes. You will be notified by the district JMC messaging system (text message and/or telephone call) when the alternative bus routes will be implemented. Please note that the bus may not stop at your house when alternative routes are announced. There may be an alternative stop near you where you can meet the bus if you so choose.
As a parent you have three options when the school district implements the alternate bus routes:
1. Your child(ren) can get on the bus at the alternative stop and ride the bus to school.
2. You can drop your child(ren) off at the middle school which will open at 7:00 a.m. so parents can drop their child(ren) off (students will be supervised).
3. If you feel it’s safest to keep your child(ren) home, the absence will be excused.
Below you will find a list of the alternative bus stops and the times the bus will arrive and depart. It is important that you have your child(ren) at the stop in a timely manner so the buses stay on schedule; they cannot wait on late students.
