Meet and Greet Update
There will not be an in-person Meet and Greet this year, due to interior and exterior construction that will continue up until the start of school. Instead, teachers have been encouraged to reach out to families individually to schedule a 20-minute family connections meeting. 
 
Free and Reduced Meals/Title I Status
Breakfast and lunch are free for all students this year. However, we rely on free and reduced paperwork for a significant portion of our school funding and service to students. If you believe your family may qualify for free and reduced meals, we ask that you please complete the paperwork. Please email completed Applications to RSD.mealform@rentonschools.us or drop off at Tiffany Park Elementary School. In addition to school funding, there are additional benefits qualifying for Free and Reduced Lunch can provide your student and family. 
 
School Supplies
As part of continued efforts to improve Service, Excellence, and Equity for all students and families, Renton School District is offering school supplies for all elementary students right in their classroom. The district will purchase school supplies that elementary students need for learning, and families pay a one-time fee of $30 ($10 for families with free/reduced lunch) for school supplies in the 2021-2022 school year. Families can pay the one-time school supply fee online or by check/cash at their school.
