  • Material Pick-Up - 12pm-2pm

Materials Pick-Up

Students in grades PreK-4 will have a Materials Pick-Up Day on Friday, January 29th, from 12 pm-2 pm. Please go to the back of the building to get the fresh supplies and say hello to the Washington staff. Specials will be asynchronous during this day for all kids.


CSA students will not have this pick-up. This is because we are hopeful CSA students will be back in the school on February 1st.

P-EBT Cards

The new upload occurred this week, and money should appear on the P-EBT cards around January 25th. Please check the balance by calling the number on the back and entering the PIN if you have a card. If you need to get additional information, please call1-877-382-2363 - Press 6 to get support.


If you have never received a card, please check your mail.


Things to Remember:


  1. Don't ever throw out your card. It gets reloaded each month.
  2. Remember your Pin # and store it in a safe place.
  3. Everyone is considered remote, so the balance each month should be $117.40 per student in Lowell Public Schools.
  4. When your child returns to school, the balance will be reduced to $58.60 per student.
  5. This is funded month-to-month, so please do not rely on this grocery money long-term.
  6. More information is below.
