Your payment for CARES will be given to Mrs. Josie Wiggins in the School Office. The fee for CARES must be paid in cash or money order; no personal checks will be accepted. Please place the payments in an envelope with your child’s name and grade written on the envelope.  Your child can send it to the office with other paperwork. You are also welcome to come to the School Office to pay Mrs. Wiggins. Payments are due each Monday for the week. If a student’s account is 2 weeks delinquent, the student may not go to CARES.

All students must fill out an Emergency Form before they can begin the CARES Program. This will allow the CARES Personnel to contact the parents/guardians in case of an emergency. This form can be obtained in the School Office. If you require more information about CARES, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you,

Mrs. Patricia Wright
