 Electronic Benefit Transfer Program for the National School Lunch Program

For each day school is closed, families of school-aged children certified as free or reduced eligible will receive the equivalent of the free high rate for lunch and the severe need rate for breakfast. Specifically, a family will receive $5.70 for each eligible school-aged child in their family for each day school has been closed since March 16, 2020. Click here to learn more about the program. 


2nd Grade Time Capsule 
      Students in Mrs. Single’s class were busy creating a 2020 time capsule that will be opened in the year 2030 when they graduate from high school. The students were to include items relating to the present time and their experiences outside of the classroom. They included two current news articles, the name of a popular song from the radio, a small toy, and a 2020 penny. Students also added their names written in cursive, which is a skill they learned in 2nd grade, and paper cut-outs of their hand and foot to see how much they grew in 10 years. Mrs. Single also had the students create a Coronavirus journal to document what the students have been doing during this time to be included in the capsule. Mrs. Single told her class, “I will collect these and when you graduate in 2030 we will remember our time together in 2nd grade.” (More)
