    Dear Parent/Guardian:


    Under the previous No Child Left Behind legislation and the current Every Student Succeeds Act, your child might be eligible for extra help in reading and/or math. In order to be eligible, your child must attend Orchard School. To learn if your child is eligible, you will need to complete the “eligibility for free & reduced lunch form” and return it to school as soon as possible. If you are not sure whether you might qualify for free or reduced lunches, it is a good idea to fill out the eligibility forms anyway. If you don’t want to fill out the form, you can provide us with proof that would qualify you based on income. If you already filled out the form this year or are direct certified, you do not have to do it again. The form can be found by Clicking Here.

     If you want a printed copy call 652-7160 and the form will be sent home with your child.


    If you want free tutoring for your child, you may choose a provider from the list of State approved providers. You can find the list by Clicking Here. If you want a printed copy, please call the Superintendent’s Office at 652-7390. There is a limit to the total amount of tutoring we can provide for each student during the school year. Parents are responsible for transporting their children to and from tutoring.


    If you are interested, please fill out the free & reduced lunch form and the attached interest form. The deadline for letting us know you are interested is Tuesday, February 2.  If you need more information, call us at 652-7300.
