Current Sick Leave Donation requests:

Dorr Anderson, Sped IA at View Ridge Elementary has a son born in May 2020 with a genetic condition called Tuberous Schlerosis Complex, which has led to many doctor visits and much time off needed. Unfortunately, this trend will continue to require many more visits and sick time. Dorr will be incredibly grateful for any sick time you're able to spare to help make his and his son's situation less of a burden. Thanks so much!

Heather Cline, Spanish Teacher at Lincoln High School and a single mom, is in need of sick leave donations due to the upcoming surgery her daughter will be going through at Children's Hospital. Due to Covid-19 protocols and restrictions, more time off is required for isolating prior to the surgery. Because of these requirements, Heather won't have enough leave to last through this time. She appreciates any and all leave hours you can donate. Her daughter Saida thanks you too!
