The Bentonville School District took full advantage of this afternoon's First Friday event to get teachers and parents prepared. They encouraged students and their familes to come out to the Bentonville Square to meet with the staff before the big day.
"It's been a great response. Parents are you know able to come up, ask questions, get an answer, get a contact name. It just cuts through all the red tape. They've been very engaging," said school board President, Wendi Cheatham.
Bentonville Students return back to the classroom on August 18th.
