Clean the Marie Murphy Grounds!

When? Saturday, May 21

What? You don't need Earth Day as an excuse to clean up our community. Like we did in April at Avoca West, we will do a clean up of Marie Murphy from 9 to 10:30 on May 21. Bring the kids, bring your gloves. Donuts and juice included!

Our District technology and registration team plans to open up online registration for current families on April 11th. All families will need to confirm return to school for the coming year by completing the online registration which will be sent to families.

Headed to 3rd Grade or Marie Murphy? All soon-to-be third graders and sixth graders need to show proof of residency to be sure that you are still a resident of our district. Similarly, if your family has moved since originally enrolling, please provide our office with updated residency information so that we have a complete, updated file and information on our end. Thanks for your help!

Moving? For our students who will be attending a different district next year, please reach out to our office staff so that we can update our records and make any preparations on our end. Thanks for your help!

Care Solace REMINDER

The social and emotional well-being of our staff, students, and families is one of our top priorities in our District. We are pleased to share that Avoca has selected Care Solace, an organization determined to calm the chaos of mental health care coordination, to expand access to community mental health and substance use treatment providers for students, staff, and their families. Care Solace provides a Care Companion™ team who can quickly and confidentially find available providers in the community. Care Solace also equips school systems with a customized online tool that gives community members a way to anonymously search for community-based providers matched to their needs.

With Care Solace, families and staff gain access to a dedicated Care Companion™ to navigate the mental health care system on their behalf, calling providers to find the right fit and availability. They help families with private insurance, Medicaid, and no insurance, and are available 24/7/365 in any language.

Care Solace’s care navigation system uses proprietary technology and a vast database of behavioral and mental health care resources to find carefully verified therapists and programs in minutes.

The Care Solace service is now available at no cost to Avoca students, staff, and their families.
