Pandemic-EBT Benefits - Applications due Feb. 28!

Through the Pandemic-EBT Benefit For Families program, K-12 students who are approved for free or reduced-price meals at any time in the current school year will receive P-EBT benefits retroactive to September 2020, as long as learning model requirements are met. Students who spent the majority of the month in distance learning will receive $130 in P-EBT benefits for that month. K-12 students who spent the majority of the month in hybrid learning will receive $75 in P-EBT benefits for that month. Students who spent the majority of the month doing in-person learning will not receive P-EBT benefits for that month. Benefits are retroactive to September 2020. If you participate in MFIP or SNAP, benefits will be applied to that card. The deadline to apply is Feb. 28, 2021.

Any families who might be eligible for free or reduced-price meals, but are not yet approved, should submit an Application for Educational Benefits as soon as possible. The link for that application is here. If you cannot fill out the application online, we have paper copies available at Folwell. In addition, families should make sure their address information is current on Skyward. You can find more information here or on the flyer below. If you have questions, please reach out to Folwell's school social worker, Lindy Lange, 328-3219.
