Starting June 15, 2021 families that qualify for free or reduced price meals at school can once more apply for Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) benefits to help cover food costs they experienced while their student was not doing in-seat learning due to the pandemic. However, the P-EBT 2020-2021 program is very different from last year’s program. Please review the P-EBT Letter to Families. Here are highlights of those changes: All families must apply to get the P-EBT benefit, regardless of whether or not they receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)/Food Stamp benefits. A child may be eligible for P-EBT only if the school was closed, not doing in-seat learning, or had reduced attendance or hours at least five school days in a row due to COVID-19 (in most cases, this includes hybrid modes of learning). P-EBT benefits are available for the months of September 2020 through May 2021. The P-EBT benefit is based on the school’s report of how much of the month was not in-seat learning. If most of the school’s month was not in-seat learning, the monthly P-EBT benefit amount is $129.58. If only some of the school’s month was not in-seat learning, the monthly P-EBT benefit amount is $77.75. Families download the P-EBT application (aplicación en Español). Families must directly email or mail the P-EBT application to the Family Support Division address listed on the application by July 31, 2021. Families must not submit the application to the school district. Each eligible student will get an EBT card in his or her name with the lump sum P-EBT benefit amount for the 2020-2021 school year. Ineligible families will receive a denial letter. The application can be found on the https://mydss.mo.gov/ website. Please read the P-EBT FAQs. If you have questions on how to apply for the P-EBT benefit, contact DSS through the online chat feature at mydss.mo.gov or call 855-373-4636.
Don't forget that the ice cream truck will be here tomorrow for summer school students and staff!
Attention Summer School Families, Jack's ice cream truck will be visiting our school on Friday, June 11th and Friday, June 18th to sell students and staff ice cream. If you would like your child to be able to purchase ice cream you may send them with money on those two days. This is not a requirement. Attached is a price list and types of ice cream that will be available for purchase. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. McFall.
