District Device Collection

As many parents/guardians are aware, due to the pandemic the District assigned a Chromebook to all students who requested a device in grades 3-12. Students in grades k-2 were given an Android Tablet. As the school year comes to an end, we will be collecting devices so that over the summer our technicians can update, repair, and process this equipment so that we can reassign them next year.

Please click HERE for additional important information regarding device collection dates, times, and guidelines.  Thank you!

Vision to Learn - Mobile Eye Clinic

The Salvation Army is very excited to announce that they are partnering with Vision to Learn to provide free eye exams and glasses to children 18 and under!
On Monday, July 26th from 9AM - 3PM, Vision to Learn will be at the Salvation Army office on 240 W. Grant St. New Castle with their mobile eye clinic. Children will receive a free eye exam and free eyeglasses if needed.  They will pick out their glasses that day, and they will be sent in the mail.  One exciting thing about this program is if kids lose their glasses or break them in the 1st year of having them, Vision to Learn will ship a new pair to the child FREE OF CHARGE!  We all know how kids are with glasses!
There are no income limits/requirements for this program.  Parents must call our office at (724) 652-7921 by July 18th to register their children and to schedule an appointment time for July 26th.

Thank  you!
