EMS Winter/Holiday Support
Dear EMS Families,
The winter months often increase financial strain due to higher utility bills, holidays, winter clothing for growing students, etc.; additional stressors in the past couple of years have certainly challenged each of us in ways we never imagined. Although we continue to experience the effects of COVID-19, pandemic-specific resources that were once available to families are no longer accessible. Our hope is that our EMS community members will be able to continue to come together and support one another. Our wish is for all members of our community to feel safe and valued, and we can’t thank you all enough for doing your part to support this goal!
This year, we are continuing to organize our EMS winter/holiday support system, with a couple minor changes from last year. We are looking to gather names of families who are REQUESTING support as well as families who would like to OFFER support. This system will be anonymous (only guidance/counseling staff will have access to names). We will do our very best to fulfill all requests, but our ability to do so will depend on donations received. Below is a link to our Winter/Holiday Support survey. Please fill this out if your family could use some support during the winter months, or if you are able to donate. Every donation, no matter the size, will be much appreciated by a family in our EMS community!
If you would prefer to fill out a paper form, they are available in the main office in C building (between the Elementary and Middle schools).
In order to allow staff time to sort/distribute donations:
NOVEMBER donations and sign-ups will be due by Friday 11/12.
DECEMBER donations and sign-ups will be due by Friday 12/10.
We will continue to accept donations throughout the winter and distribute as needs arise.
