Property taxes are a major source of the district's revenue. It is important that we receive payment of these taxes to continue our delivery of a quality education. Please keep this in mind as the bills arrive in late August. We appreciate your support of the district and all the different activities our students are involved with throughout the school year.
Important: If you receive a tax bill for a property that has been sold or otherwise disposed of, it is your responsibility to forward the tax bill on to the new owners or return to the Tax Collector, with the name and address of the new owner if available.
