McKinney-Vento Letter (Homeless)



May 11, 2020


Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s):


My name is Nicholas Healy, and I am the McKinney-Vento Liaison for Granville Central School District.  Due to the recent school closure as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, we wanted to take this opportunity to reach out and support any of our families that may be experiencing a housing transition.  If your family is currently struggling with a loss of housing due to economic hardship, your students may qualify for McKinney-Vento Services.


Families that qualify under the McKinney-Vento Act have the right to the following:

  • Stay in the same school district even if currently living outside of the district

  • Get help with school supplies

  • Get access to free meals

  • Get access to Chromebooks and internet

  • Get help preparing and applying to college


Please see the reverse side of this letter for more information on McKinney-Vento supports.  If you feel there is a possibility that your family may qualify for McKinney-Vento services please contact me at (518) 642-1051 x3103 or by email at nhealy@granvillecsd.org to further discuss your situation.


Sincerely,



Nicholas Healy
