NOTICE: HB251

Intradistrict Transfer Option

State law in Georgia allows intradistrict transfer within the state. The Jefferson City School System has no options for intradistrict transfer because the system is comprised of only one school per grade band (Jefferson Elementary School - Grades PreK-2; Jefferson Academy - Grades 3-5, Jefferson Middle School - Grades 6-8, and Jefferson High School - Grades 9-12). Please contact Dr. Donna R. McMullan, Associate Superintendent, at 706-367-2883 or dmcmullan@jeffcityschools.org if you have questions or need additional information. (Posted: June 23, 2014)

Welcome to Jefferson City Schools District Pupil Transportation web page! Our mission: “To transport students to school safely ready to learn and home on schedule.”

Our Goal: “Keep 100% of the students safe 100% of the time!”

We need the cooperation of both parents and students to fulfill our mission and goals. The school bus is an extension of the classroom. Listed below are some of the conduct requirements expected of every student. Please read them carefully and discuss each of them with your student.

  1. No eating or drinking soft drinks on the school bus. Water okay.
  2. No loud noises, talking, laughing or “horse-play” that will distract the driver.
  3. Do not move from your seat while bus is in motion.
  4. No use of tobacco products, alcohol or drugs.
  5. Keep head, hands and feet inside the bus.
  6. Do not deface interior of the bus or bus seats.
  7. Sit facing the front of the bus; and keep feet out of the aisle.
  8. Objects other than those related to school are not allowed on the bus.
  9. Do not throw anything out of the bus windows.
  10. Music listening devices are okay as long as the student with the device has ear plugs and is the ONLY person that can hear the music. However, when loading the bus do not wear ear plugs because the student may become distracted and not follow driver instructions.

Food Services

Jefferson City Schools Food Service Department is committed to providing each student with a healthy, affordable, and safe meal that is served by caring individuals so students are ready to learn when they get to the classroom. School breakfast and lunch are planned and prepared according to standards that meet the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans in a safe and sanitary environment. The cafeterias serve as learning centers where students can acquire the knowledge to develop lifelong healthy eating habits

USDA’s federal nutrition regulations for school meals ensure that all meals offered are well-balanced and provide students the fuel they need. Recent changes to the meal pattern regulations include an increase in fruits and vegetables (each student must select at least one serving), a greater variety of vegetables to include dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes, an increase in the availability of whole grain products, and a more age-appropriate caloric limit. Please visit each schools website to see the lunch menu.

Meal prices for the 2016-2017 school year are as follows:
Meal prices for the 2018-2019 school year are as follows:

Student breakfast at all schools- $1.40

Student lunch at JES- $2.05

Student lunch at JA, JMS, and JHS- $2.50

Reduced price breakfast at all schools- $0.30

Reduced price lunch at all schools- $0.40

Meals should be paid for in advance or paid daily. Checks and cash are accepted at each school or you may pay online with a credit card. If you would like to prepay your student’s meal account online, please visit www.lunchprepay.com. To register, you will need your child’s district student number. You can find this number by logging into the Parent Portal. Your student’s district ID is located next to their picture on the homepage. Once you have created an account on Lunch Prepay, you can make payments, view balances, view meal histories, and receive low balance notifications. There is a $1.95 transaction fee. However, you can make payments and apply it to multiple lunch accounts under one transaction.

Applications for free or reduced meals are accepted all year long. A new application needs to be filled out each school year. Only one application needs to be filled out for each family. You can mail these forms into central office or have your student turn them into the cafeteria staff at their school.

Transportation

This section will describe policies and procedures relating to parking, student drop-off, student pick-up and bus travel.

Students are not allowed to park in the faculty parking lot or area during school hours.

Parking on campus is a privilege. Therefore, certain rules and regulations are expected of the student to maintain this privilege. At Jefferson High School, a student must be in good academic, attendance, and disciplinary standing to purchase and keep a parking permit. At any time a student begins to exhibit inappropriate grades, attendance, and / or behavior, they will forfeit their parking privilege for a specified period of time up to the remainder of the school year. In order to apply and purchase a parking permit, a student can have no major disciplinary referrals (Level 3 or 4) and must be clear of all fees, fines, and obligations.

Parking must be in marked spaces only. Parking hang tags must be displayed in vehicle at all times. Parking hang tags can be purchased for $40 ($20 if purchased after spring break) and are valid through the current school year.

Parking Application

Do not park in driveways, in entrances, exits, or on the grass. Parking outside marked spaces, in driveways and entrances or exits of parking lot, and parking so as to block other cars is prohibited.

Once students arrive at school they must park and leave their vehicles. Returning to parked vehicles, except with permission of an administrator, may not be done until the time for the student to leave school. No loitering or congregating in the parking lot is permitted during school hours. Infractions can result in the loss of parking privileges, exemption status, and/or disciplinary action.

Student drop-off occurs in the back of the school on the road between the Annex and the Art Building. Enter from Old Pendegrass Road (last right before the railroad tracks). The left lane is for through traffic and student parking only; all drop-off occurs in the right lane. All people exiting the car should exit on their right-hand side. Exiting the vehicle on the left-hand side will put the student into a moving lane of traffic.

The drop-off zone begins after the ROTC building parking lot and extends to the crosswalk between the Art Building and the Annex. Once you enter the drop-off zone, pull as far forward as you can before traffic stops you. Once you stop, have your student exit the vehicle on the right-hand side and use the sidewalks to travel to his or her destination.

Students should never walk in the road. If they need to cross the drop-off road to reach the Art Building, they should walk to the front of the Annex and use the crosswalk between the Annex and the Art Building. Always use the sidewalk. Do not walk in the road.

Once the student exits the vehicle, you will continue on this road until you reach 129. If there are stopped cars in front of you after drop off, you may change lanes to the left lane to exit, but please exercise extreme caution when doing so to avoid accidents. Please drive slowly. There is a lot of foot traffic in this area in the mornings and safety should always be your first priority.
