JPS School Buses

In an effort to work more efficiently, JPS school buses will no longer deviate from their regular routes. Buses will not pick up and drop off students at locations other than their home addresses. This includes after school programs and daycare centers. However, buses will provide transportation to special programs, like APAC, International Baccalaureate, and Montessori. 

These changes were made to ensure buses and students arrive to their destinations in a timely and safe manner. For more information, call the JPS Transportation Department at (601) 960-8919.

"Do You Have Homework Tonight?"
Our students have homework every night, 
Ask more questions. Encourage you children to take responsibility for their success. Keep your questions brief and positive--and always assume the best. For example:

  1. Would you like my help?
  2. What grade do you want to earn?
  3. What do you think it would take to accomplish that grade?
  4. How will I know your homework is being done?
  5. How do you want to be reminded?
--Focus on the Family
