Back to School Supplies Program

Every year, students need adequate supplies to be successful in school. The Back-to-School Supplies Program seeks to ensure EACH student is prepared, even if a family is experiencing financial hardship.

HOW TO ACCESS SUPPLIES:

You can pick up supplies during Back-to-School Open House Nights across the district. Simply stop by the school your child will be attending for the 2021/2022 academic year during the times listed below. Ask for the School Supplies Program or to speak with the school social worker.  Supplies may be accessed throughout the year via the school social worker. If your child is attending EP Online and needs access to supplies, contact Reta_Johnson@edenpr.org or 952-975-7030.
