Resources for Military Families

Military Resources for Veterans and Their Families

The Pike-Delta-York School district is a proud supporter of our Armed Forces. In an effort to better serve our staff and students who are part of the military family, we are providing several links to programs and services designed to assist those veterns and their families in several different aspects of work, school, family and homelife. 
 
If you are a new military family to our school and have yet to be identified for this program, please contact the Middle School Guidance office at 419-822-9118 so we can add you to our military family listing.
