IMPORTANT SURVEY FROM MN DEP'T OF ED
FAMILIES, PLEASE COMPLETE:

As the Minnesota Department of Education works closely with the Minnesota Department of Health to plan for the 2020-21 school year, they want to hear from families about their experience with distance learning this spring. 

This feedback is extremely valuable to them. The information will allow MDE to help families as they balance the responsibilities of work and family, while also supporting student learning.  

               The survey is available here in several languages.
The survey will close on June 30th.

Reggie icon Attention: New Program Offers Funds to Families of Children Ages 5- 18 Who Qualify for Free and Reduced-Price Meals

The Minnesota Department of Human Services is now offering additional funds for the families of children ages 5 to 18 who qualify for free and reduced-price meals. This new program, called Pandemic EBT (P-EBT), will provide $325 per child that families can use to purchase nutritious food for their household.  Benefits are available to two groups: 

Families receiving Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits on March 18, 2020. Benefits for these families were issued automatically and appeared on their EBT balance on May 30, 2020. These families do not need to take any further action.

Families receiving free or reduced-price school meals, but not SNAP or MFIP benefits. These families need to fill out a short application for a P-EBT card. Families can apply between June 8, 2020, and June 30, 2020. If approved, families will receive a P-EBT card in the mail, which will arrive with the funds preloaded. 

Families in need of assistance accessing or using their P-EBT benefits are urged to contact the P-EBT Hotline at 651-431-4050 or 800-657-3698. If your family or someone you know needs additional ongoing assistance accessing healthy foods, please contact your local tribal or county human services office, visit ApplyMN, or call the Minnesota Food HelpLine at 888-711-1151.

Attention, USC Students:
Your teachers miss seeing you every day, so they--along with other staff members--have created a video to show what they have been doing this week.

The kitchen staff might be preparing meals a little differently, the bus drivers are transporting sack lunches instead of students, but your teachers remain devoted to your education. Along with practicing new skills, they are preparing lessons they are anxious to share with you. Until we are together again, have fun, practice your Rebel Rights of Responsibility, Respect, and Safety--and, most important now, Stay Healthy!
