The Public Schools of Robeson County is among the North Carolina school districts approved for eligible students to receive P-EBT benefits for August and September 2020.

The Pandemic-EBT program, a collaboration between the NC Department of Health and Human Services and the NC Department of Public Instruction, helps families purchase food for children whose access to free and reduced-price meals at school has been impacted by COVID-19. The program provides benefits on an EBT card that can be used to buy food at authorized retailers, including most major grocery stores. Eligibility for the fall 2020 P-EBT benefits is different than the eligibility criteria last spring.

North Carolina School Districts or Charter Schools Eligible to Receive P-EBT Benefits for August and September Children are eligible if they had access to free or reduced-priced meals at school last year, their school district or charter school is eligible to provide free or reduce-priced meals at school this year, and their school district or charter school utilized virtual learning for all students for at least five consecutive school days between August 17th and September 30th . This is different than the eligibility criteria for P-EBT benefits in the spring, which was available to all children who normally access free or reduced lunch, regardless of school circumstance. Eligibility criteria are based on guidance from the US Department of Agriculture.

Families do not need to apply for P-EBT. Eligible families already receiving Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) benefits will receive an additional benefit on their existing EBT card. Families who received P-EBT in the spring and are eligible under the new criteria will receive additional benefit on their original P-EBT card. Eligible families who do not have an FNS or P-EBT card will be mailed a card. Families being mailed a new card will receive the card by mid-October.

More information about the P-EBT program can be found at: https://covid19.ncdhhs.gov/information/human-services/pandemic-electronic-benefit-transfer-p-ebt-program
Eligible families with questions about their P-EBT card can call the NC EBT Call Center at 1-866-719-0141.

The Public Schools of Robeson County will begin posting the number of confirmed, school-related COVID-19 cases that are reported to us by the Robeson County Health Department. This will give families and staff more information about how the pandemic is impacting our school system. Names and other identifying information, including school/site location, will not be released due to privacy laws and the sensitivity of this information.

Interim-Superintendent Loistine DeFreece said the COVID-19 dashboard is a result of the Board of Education’s intent to enhance transparency with the community about the pandemic. DeFreece stated, “Like all other districts in North Carolina, the Public Schools of Robeson County is concerned about the well-being and health of our students, staff, and parents. This new tool will help our community and our school district make more informed decisions based on the data.”
