Just as a reminder....

JCPS Transportation Services and School Nutrition are hosting a Summer Information Fair at each high school. The information fair will provide parents an opportunity to request, verify, and ensure their student has bus transportation and a meal service plan prior to the opening of school. Families will have an opportunity to apply for meal benefits while on site.


The summer information fair for all schools in our area will be held at Clayton High School (in the cafeteria) on August 2, 2022 from 1:00 to 7:00 PM.
