PTA Back to School Picnic Tonight 

Join family, friends, and staff on the Deep Run playground and field for the annual Back to School Picnic.  The event will be held from 6:00-7:30.  Bring a picnic dinner and a blanket or chairs. Your children might see some old classmates and introduce you to some new ones!

 The PTA will provide one snoball free to each Deep Run student who attends the picnic.  Other families may purchase a snoball. 

 Picnic familiar en Deep Run. Trae la cena. Diviértete con amigos. Los estudiantes de Deep Run pueden obtener un cono de nieve gratis.

Complete Family File and FARMS

We have a large number of students who still need to have their "emergency card"  information updated in Family FileWe also need families who might be eligible to apply for FARMS.

Many HCPSS families are eligible to participate in the Free and Reduced Price Meals (FARMs) program, which provides children with a wide range of benefits. Families are urged to check their eligibility and complete a FARMS application as soon as possible. Families must submit a new application every school year. Details on the Free and Reduced Meals program, including a link to apply, are available online.
