A FEW NEW LUNCH PROCEDURES
Benefits available for free, reduced lunch participants
Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) assistance is now available to qualifying Utah families. The P-EBT benefit, which helps cover food purchases, will be sent to households with children who temporarily lost access to free or reduced-price school meals due to pandemic-related school closures during the 2020-21 school year.
“We want all Utahns to have the help they need, especially when it comes to feeding our children,” said Muris Prses, Department of Workforce Services Eligibility Services assistant director. “School lunch is an essential meal for many families and this benefit will cover food costs incurred because of school closures and adjusted schedules.”
P-EBT eligibility is determined by the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) based on participation in the National School Lunch Program, free or reduced-price school meal status, and the days a student was remotely or virtually attending school. To receive P-EBT, students must be signed up for free or reduced-price school meals; parents have until May 10 to sign up through their schools to receive a payment for the 2020-21 school year. Customers who received SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) from September 2020 to the most current month and are eligible for P-EBT will automatically receive P-EBT benefits on their SNAP EBT card. A P-EBT card (similar to a debit card) will be sent to qualifying households that do not receive SNAP.
“USBE is working with local districts, public charter and private schools to determine which sites and students meet the criteria for P-EBT benefits due to limited access to school meals,” said Kathleen Britton, USBE director of Child Nutrition Programs.
P-EBT is a federal food assistance program created by Congress as part of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.

Workforce Services is working with the Utah State Board of Education and community partners to ensure families are aware of these important benefits.
a thank you concerning masks
Dear parents and guardians,
We want to thank you for your continued support of Reading Elementary. As you know, you received a letter last Friday outlining how our school, along with all schools in Davis School District and across the state, are adhering to a standing state public health order regarding face masks. That order remains in effect until June 15, 2021. Parent and student support of that public health order was fantastic today as it has been throughout the year. It mirrors what the response has been to our “The Big Five” — hygiene etiquette, staying home when sick, wearing face coverings, physical distancing when possible, and cleaning and disinfecting — since the start of the school year. Educating students during a COVID-19 pandemic is challenging, but we’ve been able to do that with your continued help. Once again, it’s an indication to me about the great community with whom I have the honor to work.
Mr. Scott Hughes
