Classroom School Supplies...The Selah School District Has Them Covered!

As families begin checking their back-to-school lists, this year one item to cross off is purchasing student school supplies.  That’s because this year, the Selah School District has this covered!

As students prepare for the 2020-2021 school year, because of the continued presence of the COVID-19 virus, this fall presents another unique educational environment.  To make the back-to-school transition simpler and more convenient this year, families are not required to purchase classroom school supplies.  When students are participating in learning activities on campus, the District has the needed supplies covered as it can purchase materials in bulk and directly from wholesale companies. 

Supplies that the District will provide when students are participating in classroom instruction include materials listed on traditional lists such as paper, pencils, crayons, scissors, and glue to name a few items.  School related supplies not provided by the District include items such as backpacks and lunch boxes, ASB, Athletic, Club and Music fees, as well as for yearbooks and fines and other materials not listed on traditional school supply lists.  These items will still need to be purchased by families if needed.

The school supplies purchased by the District are intended for use while students are on campus and participating in classroom learning activities.  Families participating in remote learning will be responsible for their own school supplies.  Because the District is purchasing the classroom school supplies for the 2020-2021 school year, individual schools will not be posting grade level supply lists as has been done in the past.  Additionally, as the school year proceeds, please keep watching for information on how the District can help families save money on next year’s school supply purchases. 

If you have any questions regarding school supplies for this school year, please contact the building your child(ren) attend(s).

We look forward to the beginning of a new school year.  Just remember, do not worry about purchasing school supplies…The Selah School District has those covered!
