Jasper Middle School Assistant Principal Duane Cronic helps students find their buses on the first day of school Tuesday. There were major changes to traffic flow at JMS this year, which appear to have worked well on day one. Cronic and the school system’s Director of Operations Stacy Gilleland said the new traffic patterns worked wonders and significantly reduced congestion on Highway 53, especially during morning hours. PHS also changed parent pick-ups in the afternoon, with traffic flowing all the way around the high school. See page 10B for photos from the first day of school.
