Picture Retake Day!

Picture retake day is Tuesday, October 21st.  If you didn’t get your picture taken on the original picture day,  please pick up an order packet at the front office.  If you want retakes, make sure to bring in your old picture packet to return to the photographer.

Federal Impact Aid Surveys

Today, your child will be bringing home their Federal Impact Aid Survey to be completed.  It is important that The Vail School District receive an annual signed survey by ALL parents or guardians for each student in order to receive credit, even if you are not active military or a civilian working on Federal Property on October 15, 2014.

Impact Aid was designed to assist local school districts that have lost property tax revenue due to the presence of tax-exempt Federal Property. Last year our District received Federal Impact Aid because of your cooperation in returning these forms to us in a timely manner.

In order for our District to meet the filing deadline we need to have the completed form(s) returned no later than October 21, 2014, even if your employment does not fall under these categories.

Thank you for your continued support of Desert Sky Middle School and the Vail School District.

Free and Reduced Meal Applications

As a reminder, if your child qualified for free or reduced meals last year you need to fill out a new application, that eligibility will expire in August.  You can fill out an application on line at mymealtime.com or get a paper application from the school.  If you have any questions you can contact Chelsea Slunaker at 520-879-2090.
