(New) High School Distance Learning Meal Kit Pickup - Starting Nov. 9th

Beginning Nov. 9, all students are eligible for free seven-day meal kits to support their distance learning. To best meet the needs of our families, meal kits will be available for pick up near the middle or high schools’ entrance doors at these times:

· Monday 4:00pm- 5:30pm

· Tuesday 7:30am- 9:00am

· Wednesday 10:00am- 11:00am (Digital Academy Meals will continue)

· Thursday 7:30am- 9:00am

· Friday 7:30am- 9:00am

Look for the banner and sign for the distribution location. Families with children in multiple schools are encouraged to pick-up all seven-day meal kits at one school.

Initially, families will be asked to complete this Seven-Day Meal Kit Interest Survey. This will allow the Food and Nutrition Services department to prepare the number of meal kits needed. The survey only needs to be completed once.

The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture has authorized funding for schools to provide meals at no charge to children, 18 and younger, for the entire school year. All secondary families are encouraged to participate in this opportunity. Any child 18 and younger, or parent/guardian of a child is able pick up these seven-day meal kits. For contactless distribution, the seven-day meal kit boxes will be placed on a 6-foot table with a bag of milk on the side. Families will be able to take as many boxes as needed for their children. Food and Nutrition Staff will monitor and replenish the table as needed.

(New) ATTENTION, AP Students

ATTENTION all EVHS Advanced Placement (AP) Students: ALL AP students must be sure you have 1) PAID for your required AP exams and that you have 2) used a JOIN CODE to register for each of your AP exam(s) in AP Classroom at the College Board website.

This is a 2-step process! Please check to be sure you have completed both steps. If you still need to pay for your exam, you must contact Joan Beckmann, MyPaymentsPlus support staff, at 952-431-8904 and she will assist you with payment (Free or Reduced Lunch eligible should also contact Ms. Beckmann.)

Contact your AP teacher if you need a JOIN CODE to register in AP Classroom. The final deadline to complete these 2 tasks is this Thursday, November 12th. There is a $40 late fee imposed by the College Board after Nov. 13th.

Contact Chris Franken, AP Coordinator, at chris.franken@district196.org if you need additional help with this process.

Last Year Locker Pickup

Did you get all your locker belongings at the end of the school year last year? For students that have not received their items from their locker, see Mr. Habeck in Student Services. We have your belongings available for pick up.

Your child may be eligible for free or reduced-price school meals, services, etc.

District 196 provides healthy meals each day for all students. And your family may qualify for free or reduced-priced school meals. If you participated in this program last school year and wish to participate again this year, you must submit a new application each year. In addition to school meals, if you qualify, you may be eligible for benefits through other school district programs, such as vison/hearing services, scholarships, transportation, community education, field trips, band instruments, extra or non-curricular activities and other fee-based programs.

Federal funds and school-related fees are determined with this information. The failure to complete the application could result in the loss of millions of dollars to our school system, which would negatively affect teaching and learning in a significant way.

All students in our district are currently eligible to receive free breakfast and lunch through the extension of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s free meals program through the end of the school year, however, to be eligible for other benefits, it is important families who qualify for free or reduced-price meals still apply this year.

To apply, click here, or visit https://paypams.com/Applynowisd196 or call 651-683-6958 if you need assistance filling out the application.

Is that going to stop her perfect party from happening? Not at all! Like moths to a flame, the house lights are attracting all types of unexpected guests. Join her in The Perfect Ending as she juggles a grease monkey, looting neighbors, an insurance salesman, her son's juvenile delinquent girlfriend and many other zany characters in an attempt to maintain a perfect house and to be the absolute perfect hostess, right up until the very last moment. Will the world come to an end, or will Mother get to have her perfect dinner party?
