Thank you for your continued support of our students, staff, and school community. Below is some important information and a convenient process that can be a benefit to both your family and our schools. Even though all children will be able to eat free during the 2021-22 school year, the Household Economic Survey (HES) generates additional funding for our local educational programs.

We ask that all families consider, review, and complete the HES application for two very important reasons. 

  • School enrollment fees are linked to this survey and your family may qualify for free or reduced school enrollment fees based upon the results of your response.
  • The results of the HES survey are used to determine a portion of the district state aid funding. If families that would otherwise qualify, do not complete the application, state funding for our school district may be reduced.

We have included a link to the application below for your convenience and consideration.  Please complete the survey to determine your eligibility for free or reduced enrollment fees and to ensure your school receives all of the eligible state aid funding.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact our district office.

If you prefer, you can submit the Household Economic Survey application by mail or return it in person to your child’s school. If you decide to send your documents by mail, please send them to the address below.
