United Way Bed Races

Two Waterbury schools participated in the United Way’s Bed Race October 14th. Hopeville School and West Side Middle School had the highest level of participation in the recent employee fundraising campaign for the United Way, and the reward was representing the school district in the races. Both schools presented colorfully decorated beds, with West Side adopting a “West Side Warios” theme, dressing much like the video game character Mario, and Hopeville donning pink clothes in a “Hopeville Goes Pink” theme for breast cancer awareness. Darren Schwartz raced alongside the Hopeville team, and Board President Liz Brown was on hand to cheer on both schools.  Hopeville advanced to the second round despite losing a wheel off its original bed during its heat.

Services for Those Who Become Homeless

If you become homeless, the McKenney-Vento Act provides special services for your child to address the special needs he or she may have while displaced. The McKenney-Vento Act defines "homeless children and youth" as individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. This includes those who are sharing housing with others (doubled up with a friend or relative), living in motels or camp grounds, or living in emergency shelters, as well as those having no address because they are living in a car, public space or abandoned building.

McKinney-Vento provides transportation from the temporary residence to school and back, school uniforms and basic school supplies, tutors, and tools for school. Please click here to view a brochure with more details on the law and how you may access services.  Please click here for Spanish version of brochure.  

You may also contact your school's Parent Liaison for more information on how to access these services and to set up transportation for your child if needed.
