Free Lunch Program
Beginning September 14th, 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 December.
School vans will stop at various locations in the community to hand out meals. The Anacortes High School will have 2 times available for pick-up.
To help us ensure you receive meals each week, please submit an order with the form located HERE. This form will be available each week. This will help us know how much to send to each site.
Meals will be available for pick-up twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The first week of school will be a Monday and Thursday pick up. All meals include breakfast and lunch.
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 Skagit County Community Resource Guide contains addresses, phone numbers and brief descriptions for dozens of resources in the community.
During our extended school closure and the new hybrid and @home school options, the Anacortes School District library staff seeks to partner with families and the public library to support continued reading, maintain community, and support well-being. Check out the Anacortes Reads page on the district website. With home-based learning, our primary goal is to provide resources that support understanding of concepts previously taught. The resources provided here will allow for reading exploration and prevent "school closure" slide. They are intended as an opportunity for your child to explore interests and build on existing literacy skills.

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.
