Hello All,

Well it is that time of year again, summer break is almost over. I just wanted to let you know about a couple changes.  

With the new school times at UMS and UHS (8:10-3:08) and some rearranging of routes, be sure to look at your pick up time because it probably has changed.  Those times this year will be found on your parent portal of JMC.  It is listed to the left of your screen after you log into the parent portal.  

Also please remind your child to be waiting at the road 5 minutes before the pick up time so we can keep the bus rolling on time.  I do understand if the weather does not permit waiting outside, then we will wait for them to come out.  

If you need to know where the in town stops are please view the routes below.  

Thanks ,
