On behalf of the Jenkins Independent School System faculty and staff, I want to thank all stakeholders for their support and trust. It is our goal to provide a caring, safe, and rich learning environment for each child that walks through our doors. Our staff is committed to providing your child with a wonderful school experience and an education that will prepare them to thrive in the 21st century. We believe that to achieve these goals, parent and home involvement is essential.


I invite and encourage all parents to call my office to discuss any concerns you may have about your child’s education. I would also encourage parents to log into Infinite Campus often to monitor the progress of your child. We do offer tutoring after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays which lasts until 5:00. Transportation is available for students who live in the school district.


The school counselor is here to help in several different areas of your child’s education.  The counselor will be training your students on topics such as suicide prevention and anti-bullying.  We also have academic counseling.  If your child is struggling academically, please encourage them to talk to the counselor and/or reach out to their teachers for help.


High school students need to be thinking about taking the ACT this fall.  The ACT will be given in September, October, and December.  We will also be discussing and handing out scholarship opportunities.  If you need any help with anything or have any questions, please feel free to contact Mrs. Meade, your school counselor.


I look forward to us working together this year.
