District Tournament Parking

To whom it may concern:

Everyone here at Jenkins Independent School is very excited about hosting the 2015-2016 53rd District Boys and Girls Basketball Tournaments this year (Monday, February 22nd thru Friday, February 26th). There has been a tremendous amount of planning involved in preparation of these tournaments. One issue that I would like to address is parking. In order to alleviate any parking concerns anyone may have we are going to provide a complimentary shuttle service each night of the tournaments. The shuttles will make a continuous loop from the school down to the following locations:

  • Las Penas (City Pool Side)
  • Bread Store
  • City Park
  • Mini-Park (By Softball Field)
  • Softball Field
  • Library/Museum Parking Lot

We hope that this will assist in ensuring that everyone has a positive and pleasant experience during the district tournaments. Jenkins City Police, Jenkins Fire Department, and the Jenkins Kiwanis Club will collaborate with Jenkins Independent School staff members in their efforts to keep everyone safe while attending the tournaments.
