     Dear Parent(s) or Guardian(s),

    Summer is coming soon. You may be thinking about what your child will do for meals while school is out. The good news is that the U.S. Department of Agriculture partners in our local community to serve free meals. It’s food that’s in, while school is out. There are no income requirements, and any child under age 18 may come to eat.

    We are sending home information with ways that you can find out about summer meals in our area. Please take advantage of this free opportunity. Your children will receive free nutritious meals to eat on site under the management of a site supervisor. To find a site near you, you may also dial 2-1-1 for the locations, dates, and times of summer meal sites in your area.

    Alternatively, you can text “FOOD” to 877-877.

    Have a great summer!

    • 4 doses of polio
    • 2 doses of measles, mumps and rubella
    • 3 doses of hepatitis B
    • 2 doses of varicella (chickenpox) or evidence of immunity


    7th through 12th grade students need to meet ADDITIONAL immunization requirements for attendance:

    • 2 doses of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV): The 1st dose is given 11-15 years of age and the 2nd dose is required at age 16 or entry into 12th grade

    As always, your child's physician is the best source of information about immunizations and all of your child's health needs.

  • Tax Exemption Summary

    From time to time, taxpayers have questions about possibly being exempt from paying Per Capita, Adult Resident, Occupation Assessment, and Local Service taxes, also called “nuisance taxes.” Information about age and income exemptions can be found in the attached chart. If a taxpayer qualifies for an exemption, it is his/her responsibility to file the paperwork, during the specified window, to the Capital Tax Bureau. The school district does not physically collect the taxes, maintain the tax rolls, or mail tax notices. If you believe you are exempt, please check the chart, below, and pay careful attention to the age and income exclusion rules, and to the deadlines and frequency for filing the required forms to the Capital Tax Bureau. The forms can be obtained online at http://www.captax.com/, by clicking on the “Individual Taxpayer” tab, or by contacting the local Capital Tax Bureau office at 2209 North Center Ave, Somerset, PA 15501 or (814) 701-2475. All tax payment questions should be directed to Capital Tax Bureau and not to the District. Please share this information with Somerset Area School District taxpayers who might qualify!
