The term homeless children and youth is defined as individuals who lack a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence. This includes individuals sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship or a similar reason.
Examples of homelessness include:
Children who are experiencing homelessness may qualify for assistance with free school lunch, school supplies/materials, tutoring and transportation so that they can remain in their school of origin throughout the duration of their homeless episode.
If you believe your child(ren) may qualify for this service, please contact Mrs. Tara Achtziger, Assistant Principal, Homeless Liaison at 724-804-7030.
If your living situation changes during the school year, and you and your child(ren) become homeless, please be sure to contact the school. We will work with you so that your child(ren)’s education is disrupted as little as possible.
