Mr. Wooten and Mrs. Martin are attending the ABEA conference in Hot Springs to prepare for the upcoming year in Business, Computer Science and FBLA.
In light of all the questions we are receiving about the P-EBT programs we thought we should share this information with our district families. We hope it helps clear up some of the confusion. There are two P-EBT programs: School year (2021-22) P-EBT which only applies to on campus students only. They will receive funds of $7.10 for each day they missed in school instruction because they were quarantined/isolated or school was closed due to covid. Forms were mailed out to families and online forms posted which families could choose which one to fill out by July 29th and return them to the school. The school will then match that information with the attendance records in eschool and send that to the state. Then the state will send out the P-EBT funds to the families who qualified. Summer P-EBT which applies to all students in our district because we are a provision two school, which means all students are coded as eligible to receive free/reduced lunches. There is nothing that the families need to do at this time for this program. Each student should receive a P-EBT card with $391 loaded onto it. This will come directly from the state and does not go through the school district. Everyone who qualifies for P-EBT will receive a new card issued to the family by mail in the student’s name. The cards will be mailed in a plain white envelope addressed to the student. Families should keep the new P-EBT card until all benefits have been issued.

Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) is a federal program designed to provide food support to families with children who were receiving free and reduced-price school meals and missed school for COVID-related absences. It can help families pay for food when students are absent from school due to a COVID-19 related isolation/quarantine. The Division of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), in collaboration with the Department of Human Services (DHS), received approval to operate this program in response to the COVID-19 related school closures for school year 2021-22. To be eligible a student must: Qualify for free and reduced priced meal, AND Have been absent from school due to COVID-19 isolation/quarantine We will be mailing forms to all our families or you can use the Google Form below to submit.
