We wanted you to know that the school corporation has been working with a new electronic transportation system.  This will allow MIS students to start their day at 7:45 am  and end at 2:20 pm each day with the first day of school August 20th.  As a result, buses will be arriving earlier at bus stops and all of the routes will be new bus numbers.  We will get the information on the new bus numbers and arrival times to you prior to the beginning of the school year.   We hope that you have had a nice summer break and look forward to your children’s return to school on August 20th.

                                                Welcome to MIS!
