Dear Families - Read on for the News

Chinese canceled for Wednesday 2/22

After school Chineses classes will resume on Tuesday, 2/28.

Ordering Lunch

If your child will be late to school and will need a lunch, please contact the office before 9 AM to let us know so we can be sure they get lunch. Our order has to be called in to Moscow School District at 9 AM and we don't want to miss anyone.

Important School Funding Update

Students who qualify for free/reduced lunch determine whether or how much state and federal money the school receives for different programs and needs including:

* literacy program funding

* salary support towards paraprofessionals

* helping at-risk students meet learning standards and achieve proficiency on state assessments
* supporting effective instruction and funding professional development
* providing special education support
* receiving reimbursement for schoolwide internet access

If you think your family may qualify for free/reduced lunch (even if your student may not eat school lunches) and you have not applied for this year, please fill out the online form. You can access this with a computer, tablet or a phone. If you do not have computer or phone access to the website application, you can come to the school office and fill it out.

Dismissal Pick Up

Please plan alternate arrangements if you are unable to pick up your child by 3 PM Monday - Thursday, and 2:15 PM Friday.
