Hello! If you are in need of any assistance, please click the links to the right. Under community resources you will find information on assistance for food, clothing and COVID related concerns. Under family activities, there is a link to virtual events your family might enjoy. In addition, there is information if your employment has been impacted by COVID; information on College Bound Scholarships; Crisis information and homeless resources. Take good care!

  • Need assistance for food? Please see Community Resources (to the right) for summer meal program information as well as food resources in our community
  • If you own a small business which has been impacted by Covid, please check the following link as it might provide assistance: SBA Loan Disaster Relief:
  • If your employment has been disrupted (loss of employment, laid off, not being paid) please take a moment and review the attached link and determine if it might be helpful to your situation:
  • Free cellphones/minutes: During the COVID-19 emergency, the Health Care Authority is offering free cell phones and minutes to low income individuals through a federal program called Lifeline. For information on the phone services and carriers click here. To apply, go to the free government cell phones website. For more COVID-related information, please see DDA Coronavirus Information Page and the state COVID resource page.

Check the link to the right to determine if you are eligible for FREE tuition assistance! If you are, I encourage you to apply online as you need to do so before the end of your student's 8th grade year! YES, review this opportunity together... student and parent/guardians!

Please see Community Resources (at right) for summer activities through the HUB.

Please see the link 'Talking to your students about Coronavirus' for your reference, hoping some of the resources might be helpful.
Some thoughts as we navigate a new normal:
  • Limit your media exposure as the barrage of stories can create additional stress and anxiety, encourage your student to do the same. Check a couple of reliable sources for factual information (possible sources listed on the district link) a couple of times a day, not every 10 minutes.
  • Establish a routine at home
  • Engage in the educational enrichment activities your teachers have created
  • It is OK to have conversations about your thoughts and feelings to what is happening in our world
  • Practice healthy choices: staying home, social distancing, washing hands, cough/ sneeze into elbow
  • Engage in  activities at home to do together: play games, watch a movie together, read a book together, go for a walk, do an arts and craft activity, bake your favorite cookies
  • Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions: Jennifer Ashlock [email protected]
  • If your student would like to talk with me, please email me and with your permission I will either email or call your student.
Please continue to take good care and do not hesitate to reach out if there is anything I can do to assist.
All my best, Jennifer
