 ***Scholarship applications during closure***

Please check individual scholarship entries for deadline extensions and other updated information. I will update them as I communicate with providers. For scholarship applications that come back to me, you have three options: 1. Email them to me at ltucci@isd319.org, 2. drop them off at the school during business hours (students and visitors aren't allowed in the building at this time, but someone is available to answer the door if you need to drop off/pick up something) or 3. mail them to the school at my attention:
