R.I.S.E. Newsletter...An information newsletter exploring the Science of Reading in Arkansas
Calendar as of 10/5/22
Homecoming is next week. Students can show their school spirit by dressing up for the following spirit days October 3-7.
The USDA program that provided free meals for all students during COVID has ended. This means that families must apply and meet the qualifications for free/reduced meals or they will have to pay the full price for each meal. The district also receives important funding based on the number of students who qualify for free/reduced meals. These funds help provide vital services for our students such as after school tutoring, reading programs, etc. Please visit www.mymealtime.com to apply. Applications must be submitted before September 30 for the district to receive this funding.
The health department will be on campus on October 5 to give flu shots to students. If you wish for your child to receive a flu shot, send the required forms back to school with your child. Forms should be coming home today.
Calendar as of 9/19/22

As you know, the federal USDA waiver that allowed Clarksville School District to provide meals at no cost to ALL students expired in June. If you have not applied for free/reduced meals, please apply online at www.mymealtime.com. Even if you do not think you will qualify for free meals, please apply. You might be able to receive meals for a reduced price. This is completely confidential. If you need assistance, you can call the Child Nutrition Department at 479-979-6008. If you do not qualify for free meals, you can still set up an account with My Meal Time to get balance alerts, pay your lunch bill, and more.
