That’s right! I received this in my inbox today, all you need is proof that you are a homeschooler. I says, would having school aged children in tow during school hours be proof enough? 😉 Probably not!
Thank you, Starbucks! Unfortunately for me, I won’t be near a Starbucks on Monday, unless I can plan a school day in the “city” with friends there…hint, hint anyone??? And for those of you about to remind me that I gave up coffee almost two years ago…I still indulge once in a long while…
Pass this news along to all your teacher friends!
This coming Monday, September 29, homeschool parents will be able to
pick up a complimentary tall size (12 fl. oz.) cup of Pike Place Roast
This promotion is part of Starbucks “Great Start for Great Teachers”
promotion, and is now open to all teachers.
HSLDA intervened when we were alerted that homeschool parents were not
included in the promotion.
We are pleased that Starbucks is recognizing the contribution of
homeschool parents by extending their program to us.
In order to pick up your free cup of Pike Place Roast you will need to
present evidence that you are a homeschooler.
Any one item on the following list should be accepted by Starbucks:
- Home School Legal Defense Association membership card.
- Membership card from a state homeschooling organization.
- Notification from a school district or state government recognizing compliance with compulsory attendance.
- Paperwork submitted showing intent to establish a homeschool program.
- Paperwork showing the establishment of a private school.
If you don’t have one of the items on this list be creative and try to
provide other proof of homeschooling.
Please note: the final decision about whether to accept proof of homeschooling resides with Starbucks.
