Hello Cottonwood Families!

My name is Samantha and I am an HST here at Cottonwood School. I have taken on the role as the homeless/foster youth liaison as we build this program for families that may be in a housing transition or experiencing personal difficulties that affect access to education. The goal is to make sure your child has full access to all educational services. For 2022, I will be sending out regular monthly newsletters with community resource updates as they become available. Please let me know if you would like for me to remove you from this mailing list in the future by emailing me at mvhy@cottonwood.k12.org
