2022-2023 Backpack Program

The 2022-2023 Back Pack Program will begin on Thursday, September 15 for students in Preschool or Transitional Kindergarten and on Friday, September 16 for students in grades K-12.


This is a special program that requires the return of the permission slip linked below. A new permission slip must be turned in each year.


At the end of the week, your child will be given a backpack of nutritious, easy-to-prepare foods for the weekend -- helping your family stretch its food buying dollar. The bags will be discreetly distributed on Fridays by the end of the school day (or by the last day of school for your child each week). There are two requirements that you must meet in order for your child to receive the bags:

  1. You must complete the permission slip below and return it as quickly as possible, and
  2. Your family’s yearly income must be equal to or below the guidelines.
