Dear Parent or Guardian, The deadline to apply for P-EBT food benefits has been extended to July 31. Please review the criteria to see if your family is eligible and needs to apply for benefits. Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) is a one-time benefit for eligible families to buy food. Immigration status does not matter when applying for P-EBT. The public charge rule does not apply to P-EBT benefits. P-EBT is for children 5-18 years old who received SNAP food benefits for the month of March 2020. P-EBT is also for children up to 21 years old who are certified for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program at school during the 2019-20 school year. Children that attend a school that offers free meals to all students (Community Eligibility Provision or Provision 2) are also eligible. • Fill out an application here: https://yourtexasbenefits.com/Learn/PEBT (the URL is case-sensitive)

SUMMER MEALS-TO-YOU: TEXAS The program is available to households with at least one child eligible for Free and Reduced-Price Lunch during the school year. Students can be eligible as individuals. Each household can receive one box per week for each child, ages 0 to 18 (though the boxes include food items typically appropriate for children two and older), living in the household, provided he or she has neither graduated nor dropped out of school before the age of 18. (If you have multiple children living with you this summer, make sure to list an eligible student first on the enrollment form. We will serve as many students as possible this summer, but due to the limited number of meals we can provide, we may not be able to serve everyone who signs up. We will use a lottery to place each household into one of two groups. One group will receive food boxes throughout the summer, while the other group will be placed on a wait list to receive boxes should space become available. All families will have the same chance of receiving the food boxes, and if wait-listed, the same chance of coming off of the wait list. Signup can be done here-- https://mealstoyou.org/meals-to-you-texas/
Today (Friday, April 17), Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order closing schools for the remainder of the school year. Schools will continue to educate through online distance learning and printed packets to finish out the year. Plans for graduation are being discussed and will be posted as soon as possible. Please pray for the seniors, this is not how they wanted to finish their year.
Oakwood Students and Parents: In an effort to help out as many families as possible during this very difficult time, Oakwood ISD will be expanding it's meal service to include weekend breakfast and lunch as well. These items will be packaged in the Friday meal pickup / delivery starting next week. If you know of any student or family that could benefit from the meal service, please let them know that it is available. You do not have to be an Oakwood student, any students can benefit from this. Meals can be picked up in the cafeteria from 7:30am until 12:00pm Monday through Friday and we will continue with the deliveries as well. We are a family in Oakwood, and together we can get through these trying times.
Any sophomores and juniors interested in taking dual credit courses for the 20-21 school year, please email me ASAP. We are starting to complete the enrollment process. Current junior DC students will need to contact me as well. Email me at email@example.com -- Miss Lori
