The Family Outreach Center continues to offer academic and community support to parents. It has expanded this year to include a Weekend Backpack Program, which provides a backpack full of food every Friday to students whose families could use additional assistance. If you would like to donate food for the Weekend Backpack program, please see the list on the bottom of the page.

 Through our Family Outreach Center, the Fort Ann Elementary offers a Backpack Program. The Backpack Program is available to participating families free of cost. Every Friday that school is in session, a bag filled with non-perishable food items will be sent home for your family as part of this program. If your child has any allergies and you feel that it would be unsafe for your child to transport the backpack, please let us know immediately. Please call us at 1-518-639-5594 if you have any questions. Thank you.
