Parents, please be aware that students are not permitted to bring any beverages or food purchased at local restaurants into the school for breakfast or lunch. Your child will have to consume this in the car or at the restaurant before entering school. Students will be asked to dispose of any food or drink items before they enter into the school.
As a school with a large student body, we have numerous students with food allergies. We ask that you as parents to please be considerate and follow this school policy.
The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) provides a discount on monthly bills for qualifying households. Recipients may receive up to $30/month discount on broadband service and associated equipment rental and a one-time discount for the purchase of a laptop, tablet or desktop computer. Your household qualifies for this benefit if your service provider participates and if you have a Pulaski County Schools student in your home because our school system participates in USDA Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) providing all students with free meals at school. You can visit the ACP website to apply.
The system may request documentation to support your application. This documentation is a letter from the school certifying that the child is enrolled in Pulaski County Schools and receives benefits as part of the CEP program. If you need this letter, contact your child's school directly to request it.
