Summer food benefits

SUN Bucks (Summer EBT) is a new federal program that will provide qualified students with $120 to purchase groceries while school is out this summer. 

The district has already notified families of students who automatically qualify for the program. Families should make sure we have their current address on file in order to receive the SUN Bucks EBT cards, which we anticipate will be mailed in June.
