High school students
High school students are encouraged to purchase basic supplies such as paper, pens, pencils, etc., before the first day of school. Teachers will let students know which specific supplies they need.
Elementary and middle school students
Typically, each school creates its own school supply lists and/or sells pre-packaged supplies at the school. For the 2020-21 school year, a districtwide elementary list has been created (see below). Elementary campuses may have additional supply details and middle schools will continue to provide their own list. We recommend that you check the School Supply page on your school’s website before making any purchases.
Additional supplies may be requested by the teacher during the year for special projects.
