• As everyone may be aware, the P-EBT program has been in full swing over the last few months. Student records have and continue to be processed by the Commonwealth’s vendor, and families are receiving their benefits. All benefits will be processed and mailed by the end of July by the Commonwealth not the Food Service Department.  P-EBT eligibility is based on whether students are eligible for free or reduced-price meals.
