CEP Continues in 2023-2024:
We are pleased to announce that the Entiat School District will continue to participate in a federal program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). This program allows all children in our schools to receive school breakfast and lunch at no charge. Entiat has been approved to offer this program through the 2024-25 school year.
What does this mean for my student(s) who attend Entiat School District? In a CEP school, all students receive a nutritious breakfast and lunch at no cost, regardless of family income.
But We Need Your Help!
Since some education programs we provide are funded with state dollars that are based on the economic level of our community, we must provide income data to the state.
We will no longer be collecting Free and Reduced-Price Applications, but instead, we will collect the new Family Income Survey. This form helps us collect household information for all students attending CEP schools. Without this information, the District could lose important state funding for educational programs that our students are entitled to.
What Can You Do?
Please take a moment to complete the Family Income Survey and return it to your student’s school. Only one survey is needed per family.
We’re excited to offer no-cost meals to all students and appreciate your help. In order to continue to offer this program, we must collect this important data. If you have any questions, please contact Britney Quezada at (509) 784-1800.
It truly is an honor to return to Entiat to guide the school district in which I attended K through 12. Having graduated in 1982, Entiat schools and the community shaped who I am and the return to Entiat is full circle for me. I am so appreciative of the trust that the school board, staff and community have in me to lead the school that is so dear to me. I will work hard every day to earn that trust. Furthermore, I am truly humbled by the trust you, as a parent, have in our school to take care of your child every day from the time they get on the bus until the time they are safely home. I assure you that we will do all we can to make sure every child is safe and has a great experience.
A truly positive experience for your child is something we (staff and parents) all want and to make this happen, we all need to work together as a team. As I have shared with our staff, I know no other way than teamwork to accomplish great things. Team is at the very heart of my core values: “TEAM: Relationships and Belonging.” Our educators will work tirelessly to develop positive relationships at every level at Entiat Schools and it is vital to me that everyone, including staff, students, parents, and community members feel like they belong. You are a vital part of our team and we invite you to get involved in any way you can.
Everyone that works for the Entiat School District is an educator and is an incredibly important part of our team. The roles that our bus drivers, custodians, kitchen staff, secretaries, district office personnel, counselors, administrators, paraprofessionals, coaches, teachers, etc. have on our team in the success of your child cannot be understated. We certainly welcome and need you parents on our team. In fact, teamwork is at the core of our school theme:
BETTER TOGETHER: One Team; One Vision; One Community
Again, thank you for trusting your child to Entiat Schools and thank you for being part of the “Tiger Team.”

Pursuant to RCW 28A.225.020 and local school board policy 3122, Unexcused Absences E. 1, that states "Between the student’s second and fifth unexcused absence, the school must take the following data-informed steps: I. Middle and high school students will be administered the Washington Assessment of the Risks and Needs of Students (WARNS) or other assessment", the school will be administering the WARNS effective immediately. The assessment takes approximately 10 minutes and students will take it in private. To protect the students' confidentiality, only numbers are used to identify the student.
