Greetings Chief Families!!

Cherokee Public Schools is pleased to announce that students will have their school supplies provided for them again this year! This has been made possible by generous donations from the Ministerial Alliance and local churches. Elementary students will need to provide a backpack, classroom snacks* and a nap towel*. Supplies will be in their classrooms on the first day of school. JH/HS Students will have notebooks, pencils and pens provided for them. 

*Does not apply to all grades.

We will once again allow students in 5th - 12th grade to provide their own laptop bag as long as it has a laptop sleeve AND they pay for the $25 chromebook insurance. The school will have chromebook bags available during device handout for those that choose to use a school issued bag. Chromebook insurance is not mandatory for those using a school issued bag, but is highly encouraged! Students that have not purchased chromebook insurance will be responsible for all repairs.

School Breakfast and Lunch Information 22-23

Cherokee Public Schools will be charging for lunches this year. Cherokee has been extremely fortunate to provide meals for free over the last 6 years, but due to increased costs and changes in revenue we will no longer be able to provide a free lunch to all students.  We will however still be able to provide breakfast to ALL students at NO COST!  Please review the lunch prices and pay schedule for the 22-23 school year below. 

Reduced Lunch Price:

We do ask that EVERYONE fill out a free and reduced application when you come to finalize enrollment. 

* Did you know that the Federal Free & Reduced School Meal Application is not only about eating in the cafeteria? In addition to providing an opportunity for some of our students to eat a nutritious meal for no-cost or at a significantly-reduced cost, it also generates additional money for our school.  For example, the amount of money we receive from the federal government in our Title programs is based directly on the percentage of students enrolled in the Free & Reduced program, regardless of whether they ever eat a meal in the cafeteria. Our reimbursement from the federal government for our cost of providing Internet and Phone service is also directly tied to that same percentage.

Enrollment will be on August 2nd from 7am - 7pm at both buildings. 

Please visit our website to fill out enrollment forms prior to this date!
