PTA Council is actively engaged with the Shoreline School District and our local PTAs to provide support for all families during the COVID-19 situation. Please see the information below for ways to lend a hand or receive support. Please also connect directly with your PTA leadership or email Co-Presidents Silje Sodal and Amy Reed here. The District web page is an excellent resource for up to the minute information for Shoreline and Lake Forest Park students and families and includes a broad range of topics including childcare, financial assistance, food access, health care and much more. We are grateful to our incredible PTA volunteers and the broader community who have all stepped up and engaged in important and meaningful ways at every level. What an amazing and strong community we have!
Family Supports During Shoreline School Closures
In light of increased safety precautions, PTA Council has shifted its operations for food and gas card support for local families. Council is no longer handing out gift cards and food at the District’s Central Kitchen or by delivery, but is now working with our community partners and school Family Advocates to serve families more directly and build capacity for serving the broader community.
If you are in need of support (or can lend support), please check out the information below. You can also reach out to your school’s Family Advocate to learn about other supports. If you’re not sure who your Family Advocate is, check here.
