This elementary school is on the Havasupai Reservation in Arizona, located 8 miles down from the rim of the Grand Canyon, in Supai, the most remote village in the continental United States. Havasupai Elementary School is the most remote of the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) schools. To reach this community you must enter by mule, horse, on foot or by helicopter. Mail is delivered via mule train only.
Because of the pandemic the kids’ parents have been unable to go out of the canyon to get any school supplies for them. School starts on September 16th and they need help asap. Please take a look at their needs below and let me know what you are sending so I can update this tally.
Thank you so much for supporting the students at Havasupai Elementary School!
