As Enrollment approaches, I am gathering donations and school supplies and anticipating one of the biggest needs this year with inflation. We might see more families struggling this year and I want to be here to help!
I've been working closely with the district office in USD498 and helped identify some resources that help families when they apply and qualify for free/reduced lunches to help stretch their family budgets. Please let me know if I can help in USD#380 also!
USD380 enrollment is August 3rd.
My plan is to drive the care bus filled with school supplies to Centralia on August 3rd. Shelby Cherny is partnering with me to be in Frankfort that day. In Centralia, for families that want to wait while I fill their bags with supplies, I will plan to do that, pending weather conditions.
In Frankfort, Shelby will ask families to complete this online form or a paper form as we've previously done. I plan to pack and distribute school supplies with the child's name on it to each school before the first day of school. Supplies will be distributed based on donations received.
