One local school district is stepping up to help families affected by the government shutdown.
Just a few miles away from Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, Flour Bluff ISD knows that with each passing day, some students and their families are feeling more pressure because of the shutdown.
Kim Sneed, FBISD spokesperson says “About 20 percent of our student population have some direct affiliation with Naval Air Station Corpus Christi.”
The District can help the entire family.
Sneed added, “We have clothes available, we have school supplies available and then our counselors have resources to help our parents, direct them to available community resources.”
The district is also offering employment opportunities for anyone one looking to make some extra money. Parents can also apply for their student to get free or reduced lunch, which begins immediately and lasts through the remainder of the school year.
