SCRIP News:
Reminder: There is no order deadline on Jan 22nd as previously published. The coordinator has jury duty and will not be available. The next order deadline for plastic cards will be Feb 5th. SCRIPNOW and Reloads are available anytime when paying with Presto Pay.

Coordinator needed: The SCRIP program will need a new coordinator starting next school year. It only requires a few hours each week (Monday and Thursday mornings when school is in session) and you receive a tuition discount. If you are interested please contact Val Scheevel at scrip@kingsschools.org to begin training as soon as possible.

Stay Informed: Important information or changes about the SCRIP program will be posted on the King’s SCRIP Facebook page and also in the Parent Post. Please be sure to check the SCRIP Facebook page often, and read the Parent Post each week. The SCRIP section at www.kingsschools.org contains detailed information about how the SCRIP program works.
