All Prentiss County School District schools (Hills Chapel, Jumpertown, Mareitta, New Site, Thrasher, and Wheeler) will be distributing student instructional work packets on, Wednesday, March 25, 2020, beginning at 7:30 a.m. and ending at 5:30 p.m.

Instructions for instructional packet pick up:
1. Please stay in your vehicle at all times and your items will be brought to you.
2. No one is allowed to enter the school.
3. Parents please write in large print your child or children’s name and grade level on a sheet of paper and place it on the dashboard of the passengers side to minimize staff to car contact.
We will be working with a small number of teachers passing out packets, so the process may be slow.
If you have any questions please contact your child’s teacher.
