Dear Parents and Guardians-

MAP testing will take place on Wednesday, April 20th  (Math)  and Thursday, April 21st (Reading) for Kinder-2nd grade students. This is an opportunity for students to show the progress that they have made from winter to spring. MAP testing is an important tool used to determine student growth and is used to consider promotion to the next grade level. It is important that your children come to school on these days. Tips to help a successful MAP testing include: 

  • Eating a healthy breakfast
  • Getting a good night’s sleep
  • Arriving at school on time
Your family may be eligible for a financial benefit to assist with food purchases for your student.

PEBT benefits will soon be available for families whose children have experienced COVID related absences and who qualify for free or reduced price benefits through the National School Lunch Program.  

 

Does my child qualify?

 

Both criteria must be met to qualify for PEBT benefits.

 

#1 A COVID related absence from August – December due to a positive test or exposure that has been verified by the campus.  COVID absences from January  – May will receive benefits in July.

  

#2 Eligible for free or reduced price meals through the National School Lunch Program.  To determine your child’s eligibility, submit an application through www.schoolcafe.com.  Paper applications may also be requested from the school office.  Students attending a CEP campus or who are directly certified automatically meet the eligibility requirement.      

  

The deadline to complete a meal eligibility application is April 6th.  

 

If you have any questions, please contact your school’s Child Nutrition Assistant.
