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 COVID19-related absences. It can help families pay for food when students were 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.

*** *July 29, 2022 is the deadline for households to complete the application process and submit to the district. All paper work is at the District Office for parents to fill out. The school district will verify the absences, approve the application, and submit the student's information to DESE. DESE will provide a file for DHS to process the benefit.

For more information, call the District Office Monday-Friday 8:00 am. - 3:30 p.m. 479-997-1715.
