Jasper Middle School is hoping to make traffic flow smoother this year by changing a well known morning and afternoon routine. The new arrangement should ease the congestion on Highway 53.
Buses will begin dropping off and picking up in the front parking lot while car riders will begin dropping off and picking up in the back parking lot. Vehicles will enter from A.W. Lawson Drive beside the tennis court.
School Officials say students should not exit the car in the morning until they are parked next to the mobile units in the back.
Following students being dropped off, cars will exit from the parking lot onto Holly Street. Vehicles in the right lane must turn right and vehicles in the left lane must turn left.
During a regular school day visitors will continue to park in the front parking lot.
