    Internet

    Parents,

     
    The state of Alabama began mailing out vouchers this weekend for students to receive free internet service in their homes for the remainder of 2020. The only way to qualify for these vouchers is to have an approved free lunch application. If you have not completed the lunch application please take a few minutes to do so. This program is not run by the school system and vouchers will only be distributed directly from the state of Alabama. The link for the lunch application is located here: https://www.myschoolapps.com/.  For those that qualify you will receive a letter that lists all of the internet providers in the area that will accept vouchers and the parents will have to contact the internet provider to order the services. Once again there is no other way to apply for Alabama state internet vouchers except for filling out the lunch application. Check the website www.abcstudents.org for more information.  Free and Reduced Lunch Application website:  https://www.myschoolapps.com/. For more information go to:

    Estimados padres,

    El estado de Alabama iniciará a enviar vales este fin de semana a estudiantes para que reciban el servicio de acceso a internet de manera gratuita en sus casa por el resto del año 2020. La unica manera de calificar para el vale es de contar con una forma de lonche de la cafeteria de la escuela que este aprobada. Sí usted no ha completado la aplicación de comida de la cafeteria, por favor complete este requisito. Este prógrama no esta organizado por el Sistema Escolar y el vale será distribuido directamente por el Estado de Alabama. El link para la aplicación del lonche de la cafeteria está en: https://www.myschoolapps.com/. Aquellos que califiquen recibirán una carta con la lista de diferentes compañias de internet, las cuales tendrán acceso a proveer el servicio, en el área y aceptarán el vale y los padres tendrán que contactar la compañia de internet para ordenar el servicio. Una vez más, no hay ninguna otra manera de aplicar para Vales del Estado de Alabama, solamente completando la forma de Lonche de cafeteria de la escuela. Revise el sitio de internet de www.abcstudents.org para más informacíon.

    Sitio de internet de la Aplicación de Lonche Gratis o Reducido de la cafeteria es: https://www.myschoolapps.com/.  Para más información vaya a: www.abcstudents.org.

    Understanding Your School's Education Report Card

    AL State Report Card

    Report Card  Matthews   Elementary has a   current   score of 67/D on the Alabama State Report Card. This is a significant increase from last year. Our vision is to create a school of collaboration to increase literacy comprehension and overall student success. We are headed in the right direction and we must have continued support from family and community to help Matthews be successful.  Academic achievement and chronic absenteeism are major components of our school’s score. We must have your support in reinforcing academics at home and your commitment to sending your child to school every day. Your support is greatly valued and appreciated by Matthews Elementary staff.
