The vouchers are for ANY families, there is no specific requirements to qualify.

Help Protect Student Programs

On behalf of Cambrian students, thank you to the 500+ plus people who already signed a letter of support. If you’ve already signed, please consider sharing this information with your family, friends and neighbors -- everyone can support the initiative.

You can help PROTECT STUDENT PROGRAMS by supporting the "Support Our Students" land development initiative. Thirty seconds of your time can help generate hundreds of thousands of dollars in ongoing, annual revenue without increasing taxes in the community. Click here to sign a letter of support and to learn more.

Due to chronic state underfunding, declining enrollment, and the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cambrian School District is facing a budget deficit. Since early 2019, the District has been assessing potential district-owned land development opportunities to create additional on-going, annual revenue to sustain our award-winning programs.

Have a question? Please contact former Cambrian School District parent Eve Walton at SOSCambrianSchoolDistrict@gmail.com.


Our hardworking food service employees will be out in full force in preparation for the Winter Break. We want to make sure our families are supported during these difficult times. We will be providing drive-thru meal service at Price Middle School from 11a - 1p on the following two dates: Friday, December 18th and Monday, December 28th. Families will be given meals for 7 days on each of these dates.
