When students don’t come to open house, why not take open house on the road?
That’s what teachers at Hartley Elementary in Macon did the day before the first day of school this week when they piled onto a bus and toured the Hartley school zone.
Why do this? Principal Carmalita Dillard said, sure, a lot of kids missed open house, but there were other reasons.
“I want the teachers to be able to experience where our kids come from,” Dillard said.
