Free Lunch Program
Beginning September 14th, 2020, ASD will be providing meals at no cost to ALL children in our community, regardless of Free or Reduced-price eligibility! All children ages 1-18 are eligible to receive meals! Due to a USDA temporary nation-wide waiver, we can expect to provide these meals through the end of the National Emergency
We want to make sure that all families who need meals have access to this program. If you have any questions, please contact the Child Nutrition Office:
360-503-1328 or 360-503-1377.
email@example.com or (360) 503-1200. We are here to help.
Food-to-Go is a community weekend backpack food program that provides meals for Anacortes school kids who do not have weekend food security. 501c3
Rachel’s Closet is a place where kids can go to get the things they need. Whether it’s a spare pair of socks, a trendy new shirt or a pair of jeans without holes, all of the clothing and items in the closet are donated for the kids. Anacortes students know that if they are in need, that closet is the place to go.
The closet started off as part of Rachel’s Challenge — the legacy left by the family of Rachel Scott, the first teen killed during the shooting at Columbine High School in 1999. The challenge is based on doing acts of kindness that leave a lasting legacy.
To "shop" the closet contact School Counselor, Ian Mayer to schedule an appointment:

The PTA has set aside limited funding to help out where we can, to offer assistance with PTA membership dues and help with the cost of other programs and supplies when the cost to participate is a barrier for any of our Mustang families.
