Memorial Fund for Dennis Schultz

For over 20 years, Dee Schultz has been an instrumental teacher at Erin School.

She has been the one to hug and hold our children when they needed it most. She is the foundation of their learning and sets them on the road to success. She is the welcoming arms of Erin School and she needs us now due to her husband's unexpected passing while on his way home from work this past Wednesday, September 9th.


As part of the Erin School Family, please consider a gift in memory of Dennis Schultz to help support his wife Dee and their daughters Jordyn and Hayley (whom both attended Erin School and Hartford Union High School). Proceeds will go towards helping pay for the funeral and additional expenses as they begin their journey without their beloved father and husband.


You can donate directly to the family online, by going to PayPal and then enter deann.schultz4@gmail.com in the send money search bar (please note that your donation may state that it is "pending" while the new account is fully opened).


Or


You can mail a check made payable to Dee Schultz to the Erin School (which has agreed to collect for this memorial):

School Fees

We now have the ability for parents to pay for school fees, lunches/milk, and daycare online.

Your school fees have been “billed to your account”. To pay, log into Skyward, click on the Fee Management tab, you will see the school fees listed, click on Make a Payment (if you have more than one child, you can do this with any of them), this will take you to another site where you will see your Food Service balance as well as the required fees due. Click Add to Cart, do this for each of the fees if you have more than one child. You will also see Optional Fees, this is where you would select Athletic/Activities Fees. We are not collecting athletic/activity fees at this time, so only 4K Milk is listed (for 4K snack milk). Once you have everything added to your cart, you can Checkout. Please note, there is a service fee for using this service.


If you would like to send in a check for your fees, please download and complete the form, print it, and send it to the front office. We have copies available if you are not able to print.
