The Tennessee Department of Human Services (DHS) launched the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program to provide extra resources for families to buy food. This program is about to launch Round 3 to provide benefits backdated to October 2020 and continuing through the 2021 school year to eligible students. This benefit is ONLY for students that have been quarantined or in isolation due to COVID for over half of a month or for students that are learning 100% as a virtual student. Most students in our district will not qualify for this benefit since we have been able to have in-person instruction this school year.
Please refer to this letter for more information.
