  Jackson Public Schools will operate the Superintendent's Hotline on the first two days of school, Wednesday, August 8 and Thursday, August 9. Hotline hours are from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. both days. Parents and students may call the dedicated line at (601) 960-2781. We can help with everything from registration to transportation.   
  Is this your scholar's first bus ride? Please share it with us using the #WelcomeBackJPS.

We want to see our scholars, moms and dads, and school staff. Whether this is a first day of "big" school or first day of senior year, let's celebrate that together. Share your photos with us so that we can share with the world. Post your pictures to Twitter or Facebook using the #WelcomeBackJPS. Tag us on Facebook (JacksonPublicSchools) and on Twitter (@JPSDistrict).


The Jackson Public Schools Transportation Department is using Remind 101 to send bus transportation alerts to parents. Parents can sign up for important updates to get timely automated alerts directly to their mobile phones—not on handouts. Alerts include information about bus substitutions, status, and any other information that relates to their child's bus ride.

To get started, parents can look for instructional flyers that will be sent home with students. Alternatively, parents can get help signing up by calling one of our Transportation centers: Central, (601) 960-8919; North, (601) 987-3587; or South, (601) 960-5404.
