For families who qualified for, but have not received the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer funds:
We understand just how important the meals your children receive at our school are to your family. We also understand the unexpected hardships you may have faced last spring when those meals were no longer available because our school and others across the state shut down during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To help families like yours, Tennessee launched the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program earlier this year to provide extra resources for parents to buy food. Under the program, qualifying families received $5.70 per child for each day that child qualified for P-EBT in March, April, and May.
We are sending you this letter because our records show your child(ren) qualified for these P-EBT benefits but did not receive them. The good news is it’s not too late to change that if you feel the benefits will help you during this time.
You do not need to fill out any application or gather any documents. You simply need to come to the school administration building located at 304 New York Avenue on the following dates; October 26, 28, and 30 from 9 AM – Noon or 3 PM- 5 PM.
What You Need To Do:
- Come to the Board Room in the School Administration and let us know you would like to pick up your child(ren)’s P-EBT letter and
- Make this trip as soon as poss
- Bring a government issued ID to show
- Follow the directions provided in the letter we give you to activate your P-EBT
- Use the card just like a debit card to purchase food at any establishment that accepts EBT or online with Amazon and
If you do not want to participate in our P-EBT program there is nothing additional you need to do. We will be sending any cards not picked up back to the state so don’t delay.
