Pandemic EBT-Program Round 2 - Info for CEP Schools
What is P-EBT? The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program is part of a food assistance plan approved by the U. S. Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service, and authorized by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, for eligible students who attend kindergarten through grade 12. Students who are enrolled in a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program school are automatically eligible to receive this benefit. No action is needed.
This program is administered by the Hawaiʻi Department of Human Services. All inquiries for the Hawaiʻi P-EBT Program should be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
How Does this Work? There are three ways the P-EBT will be distributed.
1. KOKUA EBT CARD - For families that received P-EBT benefits last school year (2019-20) and are Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) households, P-EBT benefits will automatically be deposited to their existing Kokua EBT card beginning September 29, 2020. The P-EBT benefits can be used the same way as their Kokua EBT card.
2. HAWAIʻI P-EBT CARD - Families that had received P-EBT benefits for the school year 2019-20 and are eligible for P-EBT benefits for this school year 2020-21 will have their benefits loaded to their previously issued card (white card with black lettering) beginning Sept. 29th.
3. FAMILIES NEW TO THE HAWAIʻI P-EBT PROGRAM AND ELIGIBLE - Families that are from new CEP schools and did not receive P-EBT for the 2019-20 school year will be mailed a Hawaiʻi P-EBT card (white card with black lettering).
How Much Will Families Receive? Eligible families can receive up to the following amount for each child enrolled in school: August 2020: $136, September 2020: $150
Maximum for the 2-month period of School Year 2020-21: $286 per child.
Correct Mailing Address? Please ensure that your child’s school has the correct mailing address NO LATER THAN September 22, 2020. For Hawaiʻi P-EBT Program Inquiries, email: email@example.com
Aloha MMS students and families,
You should be receiving mid-quarter progress reports in the mail in the next couple of days.
Grading procedures have been amended to accommodate the disruption in school learning for the start of the school year.
Students will receive an S-satisfactory or a U-unsatisfactory, indicating progress for each class.
Letter grades will be given at the end of the first quarter. Please keep in mind that mid-quarter reports are not part of a student's permanent record.
If you have any questions regarding your child's progress please reach out to individual teachers. Staff emails are listed at molokaimiddleschool.com
September 13, 2020
Dear Molokai School Community,
This is an announcement about precautions being taken due to a positive COVID-19 case involving a Molokai High School employee. The affected employee was last on the Molokai High School campus on Friday, September 4th and had minimal interaction with staff and no interaction with students. Any impacted areas were professionally cleaned and disinfected over the weekend.
The case had the potential to indirectly affect meal service at multiple campuses.
We extend a sincere mahalo to Rep. Lynn DeCoite for her kōkua in securing an alternative provider for student meals during this temporary period. This will allow for uninterrupted grab-and-go meal service for our students.
Out of an abundance of caution, there will be a modification starting tomorrow, Monday, September 14th, to the grab-and-go pick-up location for Molokai High and Molokai Middle.
We will update families if there are any other changes. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.
Administration of Molokai High School, Molokai Middle School, Kaunakakai Elementary School and Maunaloa Elementary School.
