The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) cards will soon start to be mailed to parents of students that qualify for a free or reduced priced meal. The benefit amount is $5.86 per child for each day the child DID NOT RECEIVE A FREE OR REDUCED LUNCH MEAL at the school due to closure, reduced attendance or hours, OR SCHEDULE (remote or in school) beginning in September 2020. The benefits may change month to month, depending on how many days your child was remote learning or did not have access to breakfast or lunch at school.

Benefits will be distributed on a monthly basis from February 2021 through August 2021.

P-EBT benefits can be used to buy food items at grocery stores and other retailers that accept the Ohio Direction Card (also referred to as an EBT card.)

If the child is a current SNAP recipient:

» By mid-February, you should receive a preloaded P-EBT card in the mail.
» The card will be in the child’s name, not the parent or guardian’s name.
» Instructions on how to activate the card will be included.

Families that receive a new P-EBT card MUST keep the card in order to continue to receive their monthly benefit. The benefit will be issued on the card monthly.

Breakfast - They are given several items for them to choose. Items are not always the same. They also get a milk and juice.

Lunch - They are given a typical lunch tray which consist of the main dish (there are always two choices sometimes three) and a vegetable, fruit and milk.

We do sell some snacks for the students and they are 75 cents each. Usually popcorn, graham cookies, and Doritos. It varies from time to time.
