Monday Mustang Memo

April 20, 2020

We Miss You Mustangs!!

Have you moved? Did you get a new phone number?

Please email your new information to Mrs. Wicker today!

You may qualify for additional benefits--

The Department of Economic Services (DES) will soon distribute Pandemic Electronic Benefit Food Stamp Cards (P-EBT Cards) to all families with students eligible for Free and Reduced-Price Meal Benefits:

Per the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, DES will soon be issuing Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer food stamp cards (P-EBT), to every family with students eligible for free/reduced meals in schools.

If your child has not been enrolled in the free or reduced school meal program this year, and your financial circumstances have changed and your child(ren) would now be eligible, apply online at For quick processing, be sure to enter your child(ren)s names and birth dates exactly as you registered your children for school.

Enrolling now is important because the DES will be collecting student free and reduced meaL program data from the school database. DES has not yet announced a deadline for enrollment or a distribution date of the P-EBT card.

Benefits will be mailed, this is why it is important that GAA has your current information on file.

Parents of Students in our Special Education Program:

The Arizona Department of Education requests a survey each year to gather information on how GAA is serving your student. A staff member will be contacting you with information about the survey.

Thank you!

We're here to support you!!

Parents, guardians, students- if there is anything you need during these tough times please let us know! If your family is in need of resources or support, we can help!
