    Pandemic-EBT Emergency School Meals Program:

    Because COVID-19 closed our schools, your children may be eligible for food assistance, called Pandemic EBT (P-EBT): Emergency School Meals Program.

    P-EBT provides families with funds to make up for the cost of meals while school was closed. This benefit is for Washington children in grades k-12 who receive free or reduced-price school meals. These benefits will be on an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card which is used like a debit card to buy groceries.

    If your family has lost income since schools closed, you may be eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. You can find out if you are eligible and how to apply by going online to https://paypams.com/OnlineApp.aspx

    Every eligible child may receive up to a maximum of $399 of P-EBT. Immigration status does not matter for P-EBT – it is not Basic Food and will not count in a public charge test. P-EBT is intended to replace meals missed while schools closed due to COVID-19. Children are allowed to get free meals from school and community sites and get P-EBT at the same time – they are separate programs.

    If your family does not receive Basic Food, you must apply for P-EBT if you want to receive the funds. The application will be open by June 30. There are two ways to apply:
    See the linked flyer for more information about P-EBT. We want to make sure all of our students stay healthy and grow strong.

    Yearbooks
    Yearbooks will arrive in early July and will be distributed via drive-through at the East entrance on days/times below. Note that the pick- up schedule is alphabetical by last name and try to come on the correct day.

    You will not be able to buy books at the distribution site. Please buy in advance using SchoolPay. This is so we can comply with social distancing and keep everyone healthy. Be sure to bring an ID. Having your purchase receipt on hand is also recommended in case we've mistakenly not added you to the list.

    Seattle Public Schools Email Accounts for Students
    On May 26, 2020, Seattle Public Schools launched email accounts for all students. To better support remote continuous learning, the district is enabling student email accounts and expanding the online meeting tools: Microsoft Teams and Zoom.

    These changes will help improve communications, user experience, and security for students and teachers. Please share this link with your student, which has instructions and more information about the student email accounts: https://www.seattleschools.org/student_portal/student_email

    National Honor Society Applications:
    The application process for the National Honors Society will start in the fall of 2020. New potential members can apply after school begins. More details about applications will be available in September.

    From the Ingraham Counseling Office:
    Food Lifeline will be at their new location to distribute food boxes every Tuesday from 11am-3pm through at least July 7th. They will be at North Seattle College South Parking Lot, 9600 College Way North

    ANYONE can have access to this food. This is a confidential distribution, so there will be no paperwork or qualification. Food Lifeline is only asking for zip codes to track its efforts.
