Our Children are Born Ready!
Marla Price

Born Ready is an initiative from the Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education (ADECE) focused on raising awareness among Alabama parents of the importance of early brain development and high-quality early care and education. The mission of ADECE is to inspire and support parents and caregivers, as well as to deliver cohesive, comprehensive systems of top-quality education and care so that all Alabama children thrive and learn. Born Ready is not only developed to inform parents; it’s designed to empower them and give them access to the tools they need to be their children’s first and best teacher.

Free Meals for 2023-24 for All Students!
Marla Price

We have BIG NEWS! All students will eat free breakfast and lunch for the 2023-24 school year! This is made possible through the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) which allows for free meals for all students based on overall economic status of our regional area. All students are encouraged to dine with us! There is nothing for parents and guardians to do! No application or additional information is required. Skip the lunchbox this year and save time and money! Additionally, studies show that children who eat breakfast and lunch have fewer tardies, higher test scores, and fewer behavioral issues.

We are proud to provide this service to our students and families for the 2023-24 school year. While there is nothing to do or complete, if you have any questions, please reach out to your local cafeteria manager.

Liberty's Legacy
Marla Price

Winston County's second graders took part in their annual Liberty's Legacy, a program meant to encourage good citizenship by honoring community members who are good examples. This year's honorees are Sylvia Morgan, Addison; Ashley Swindle, Meek; Judy Sartin, Lynn; and Paula Martin, Erica Taylor, Heather Tucker, and Josh Tucker for Double Springs Elementary. All honorees are important to their communities, but one is one of our very own cafeteria managers. Lynn Elementary chose to honor Judy Sartin, and they explained why they honored her in their hero essay.
