Dear Rosa Parks Families:

We have the first week of learning in as we transition back to hybrid learning with the Safe learning Plan model. While distance learning this year had many successful components, it is wonderful to be back face to face. To say it is "great" to have students back in the building is an understatement. Our students breathe such a positive, fun-loving energy into the school on a daily basis that can't be replicated.

We have been busy re-establishing our routines and we continue to practice the 3 w's (Wear a Mask, Watch your distance and Wash your hands). Welcome back Puma FAMILIES!

Educational Benefits forms are typically known as the annual "Free and Reduced Lunch Forms". Did you know that by filling out this form, you help provide additional funding and resources that benefit students in other ways? These funds help provide our students access to counselors and social workers, as well as additional reading and math support. It can also offset the cost of student activities fees.

Many families have not completed the annual form as they typically would have. Unfortunately, this means that funding for other programs is affected.

We need your help! If you typically fill out the educational benefits form and have not yet done so this year, please do so. If you are not sure if you would qualify, please take a moment and fill out the form. If your family circumstances have recently changed due to loss of employment or other financial burden, you may also qualify.

Rosa Parks is a Schoolwide Title 1 School. In the past, Title 1 funds were available to

provide additional support to students who qualified based on their test scores. As a Schoolwide Title 1 school we are now able to utilize those resources more flexibly to support any students that would benefit. This fits wonderfully with our small group instruction blocks when students receive acceleration or enrichment based on their specific needs. Feel free to contact the school if you have questions.

As a parent, you have the right to request information about the qualifications of your child’s teacher(s). For further information, contact Dan Kamphoff, principal at Rosa Parks Elementary.
