Dear Shoreline Schools Families and Staff,

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.  


In need of support?

If you are in need of support, please check out the information below. Please contact your school’s Family Advocate to ask about other supports. If you’re not sure who your Family Advocate is, check here
