An online link to request a transfer of attendance center will be posted in March, the deadline for requests is July 1st for the upcoming school year.  More information regarding out-of-district transfers and transfer of elementary attendance centers is available from the Student & Family Resources Office by calling, 620-341-2396.

Other Resources:

School Supplies:

As you begin making preparations for the new school year, we wanted to let you know that once again the First United Methodist Church of Emporia, along with many community partners and individuals,  has generously donated all school supplies for all students Pre-K through 12th grade for the 2021-2022 school year.

The only supplies parents will need to provide are a box of kleenex and backpacks for students to transport their materials to and from school.  The school supplies will be delivered directly to each school before the first day of school.  We are very excited about continuing this partnership with the FUMC and their community partners and hope it will ease some of the back-to-school expenses for families.
