Hi friends! First and foremost, I hope you are all hanging in there during these unsettling times. Obviously, there is no PAC meeting to announce and no one knows what the rest of this school year will hold.

As far as following the Metro Schools budget, I’m trying to find out if the timeline for the city’s budget decisions will remain the same. The loss of tax revenue and the expenses of the covid-19 emergency will obviously affect things in a way we cannot yet know. I still plan to compile some information this coming week, so that parents are able to advocate to for our schools.

I still have some Hillsboro cluster yard signs on hand. Please let me know if you’d like one of these cute signs in your yard soon. Email me at: [email protected]

Also, PLEASE respond to the census request that you should have received by now. An accurate census count is crucial for our schools and communities to reserve all the resources they can, particularly important right now.

Stay safe and if you need help, please reach out. I’ve put some links below that might be helpful to your family. Please feel free to share this information if you send out any PTO communications with your school.
