Welcome to Bennett Elementary! My name is Jacquelyn Brock and I am principal at Bennett. We are a small K-2 building with approximately 280 students. Northeast Elementary is our sister school for Grades 3-5, so our start and dismissal times, as well as bus schedules, are aligned to serve families with students attending both schools.
IMPORTANT TIME CHANGE INFORMATION FOR BENNETT STUDENTS!
Bennett's school hours will change to 8:05 - 3:27, with student drop off changing to 8:05 a.m. Bus stop times are not changing; this is only to allow more time for buses to drop/pickup students at Bennett before going to Northeast.
Better-than-budgeted interest rates and a competitive market paid off for Jackson Public schools in the recent sale of bonds from a proposal voters approved in May. The 2.95-mill proposal passed by 994 votes. Funds will be used for consolidation of buildings, construction of a new school, reopening a vacant building, updating and securing learning spaces, swimming pool replacement, purchase of buses and technology upgrades.

A refurbished school bus is playing a larger part in Jackson Public Schools' plan to feed children during the summer break. The bus will make stops at 10 locations daily Monday through Friday to pass out free meals to those 18 and younger. The summer nutrition program started June 18 and runs until Aug. 10.
