Congratulations White Pass Elementary School - You have been awarded the Fresh Fruits and Vegetable Grant for 2022-2023
August 22, 2022
Our school is participating in a federal program available to select schools as part of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program called Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). This means that all students attending White Pass School District are eligible to receive breakfast and lunch at no charge throughout the 2022-2023 school year, regardless of family or household income. However, some of the education programs the district provides are funded from state dollars that require our school to collect household information for all students attending CEP schools.
In order to collect the information, the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) has developed the Family Income Survey. The Family Income Survey is used to capture information and ensure the district/school receives all of the funding it is entitled to for other state funded education programs.
Please take a moment to complete this form and return it to your student’s school. Your participation is essential in order for us to provide OSPI with the information they need and ensure White Pass School District will continue to receive critical state funding for these educational programs.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this important matter. If you have any questions, please contact Nancy Nebeker or Dawn Quintana at 360-497-3791.

Zesty Chef Club
White Pass is excited to present our newest and tastiest after-school club, Zesty Chef. It was a packed house in our first class we learned to make peanut butter pie and got to take it home and share it with our families. Next month we move on to appetizers with the goal of learning how to make a complete meal, from soup to nuts—culminating in creating and serving a full meal to our families here at the school. Due to such high interest, we are working on opening up more dates to facilitate more students attending.
