* * * NOTICE - Tax Bill Update * * *
The District has run into a number of technical issues outside of the district’s control involving the timely printing and mailing of this year’s School Tax Bills. District personnel are working diligently with our counties and service providers to set tax rates and prepare tax bills for mailing.  There will be an interest free period of 30 days to pay each tax bill once tax rates are set and bills are released.  The District will update this information when tax rates and tax bills are ready for property owners. 
 

September 7, 2018 - School Tax Bills Update 

 
* * * NOTICE * * *
 

Special Notice 

Downsville Central School is pleased to announce that for the 2018-2019 school year, the district will provide school meals (breakfast and lunch) to all students at no cost.  This is made possible through the Federal Community Eligibility Provision.

DCS believes that a child who eats healthy meals will learn better than a child who is hungry.  It is our goal to make sure that none of our students go hungry.  We urge all families to participate in this program by filling out and returning the free/reduced meal application that you will receive with the district calendar prior to the beginning of the school year as this will aide in benefiting other school programs as well.  

Please note the following:

            There will be a cost for snack milk, extra meals, snacks, ice cream etc.

            There will be no charging this year.

We ask that any family who has outstanding charges for the 2017-2018 school year, to please contact the business office to make the necessary payment arrangements so that everyone starts the new school year with a $0 balance.
