Review these helpful back to school resources in preparation for back to school season.


Menus, Free Meal Application

Every child enrolled in our school buildings may eat for free through the 2021-2022 school year. Curbside meals are not available. Continue submitting free and reduced meal applications for your children though, as programs like the P-EBT require them.


One to One Device Program

Every child in our schools receives either a tablet or laptop for use throughout the school year because of the 1:1 device program. Review the device handbook, optional device protection plan agreement, and watch tech tips.



Update the contact and medical information in your child’s school forms within PowerSchool.


Student Handbooks

Review the information within the student handbook with your child. Fill out the appropriate paperwork as well.



Items such as backpacks, hand sanitizer, facial tissues, a pencil case, and AA batteries are recommended for all students. The suggested school supply lists are broken down into grade levels.



More than 11,000 of our students ride the school bus. The transportation webpages help you discover nearby bus stops or safe walking routes.
