As of July 1st, the universal free breakfast and lunch Federal Waivers for COVID-19 have ended. Many of our families took advantage of the free breakfast and lunches offered over the past two years. Current grocery cost and the time it takes to shop, and prepare meals for your students, make our services a valuable commodity for our district families. Parents who are interested in receiving free or reduced priced meals will need to fill out a lunch application (one per family) as was the process prior to COVID-19. It is not required for every family to fill out an application. Families qualify for free or reduced lunch based on income and household size. Free or Reduce Lunch Application Parent/guardians will need to use your student's School Café # to access the application. If you need your student's School Café number to set up an account, call the Collierville Schools Nutrition Department at 901-286-6370, 901-286-6371, or 901-286-6372 between the hours of 7:30 AM-4:00 PM.

It's Tech Check time! We ask that you take a moment to inspect your child's school assigned device and accessories (case, charging cords). If you notice anything that is not working or damaged, please have your child bring the item to the Command Center (tech staff) at their school for repair or replacement. Schools may also send out a schedule for a tech check to inspect devices and update inventory. *If damages are intentional or negligent, families will be charged to repair or replace the device, per the RUP.
Since 1996, the Collierville Education Foundation (CEF) has awarded over $1.5 million in classroom grants to Collierville’s teachers. CEF currently funds $100,000 in grants each year, but receives $300,000 in teacher requests. To help close this gap, CEF is offering each Collierville Schools parent/guardian the opportunity to join the CEF 100 Circle by making a donation of $100. When you join, $25 of your donation will go directly to the PTA/PTO of your choice (select your school in the drop down in the attached link) to support their projects at your child’s school and $75 goes to classroom grants for all Collierville Schools. Working together, we can support teachers in their efforts to enhance the learning experience for all of our students! Click the image below or follow this link to join the CEF 100 Circle!
