October Newsletter Article

It is beginning to look like fall around our campus as leaves are changing color and it is getting darker much earlier in the evening.  We are more than halfway through the first quarter, and that means that parent-teacher conferences are coming up.

Sale of Bond Reduces Community Tax Rate

In May 2019, voters approved a $14 million bond estimated to cost taxpayers $2.70 per $1,000 of Assessed Value.  Due to positive market conditions and timing in August, the district sold $12.7 million of bonds at a premium to receive the full $14 million to fund the projects.  Since the Stanfield community will only be paying taxes on $12.7 million instead of $14 million, the estimated tax rate is lowered to $2.49 per $1,000. This lower estimated rate is the same as the average paid on the previous bond!

Stanfield School District Student Nutrition Program 19-20

The free/reduced lunch applications are to be completed by every student's parent/guardian. Income eligibility changes every year. There is not a set number of students or monies that people draw from. Anyone who qualifies, will receive a free lunch. The State of Oregon has voted again to cover the reduced lunch costs, so even if you qualify for the "reduced" lunch, it will be a free meal.

Stanfield School District has once again voted to give every student, regardless of income, a free breakfast.
