JPS getting information out to parents in neighborhoods

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – The Jonesboro Public School System's officials were out in Jonesboro neighborhoods Thursday night.

Superintendent Dr. Kim Wilbanks along with Jonesboro school principals and other JPS personnel went door to door in north Jonesboro.

They were out in the neighborhoods informing parents and children about upcoming open houses.

MicroSociety Magnet School Principal Misty Doyle said it was important that they got out into the community.

"We felt like sometimes that some of our parents may not have access to get to the schools. So we thought we would just bring our employees, administrators, teachers out to the houses and introduce ourselves," said Doyle.

Doyle said this is the first year that the school system has held the greeting event. They hope to make this an annual event.
