Pandemic EBT address changes. I received the following from PEBT help desk today when checking on ability to clarify/change addresses. Looks like addresses cannot be updated until after cards are mailed, and there is still no word on when that will be. Paula Bailey, email@example.com new phone number 870-515-4090 From PEBT Help Desk: If your children were eligible for the 2021-2022 P-EBT benefits, the child’s information will be forwarded to DHS by the AR Department of Education. If you have moved, we encouraged all parents to update their addresses with the school prior to the end of the school year. Unfortunately, we are not able to change addresses before cards are mailed. You may call our P-EBT Client Assistance line at 833-316-2421 or email us back once the cards are mailed. At this time, we do not have a physical date as to when that will be. Please watch our DHS Facebook page or go to our DHS Website at https://ar.gov/pebt for the most recent information.

Our students are excited about learning at Edgewood!

Second Chance Breakfast starts tomorrow at Junior High and Senior High School. Second Chance Breakfast is set up so that students who did not eat breakfast in the cafeteria can pick up breakfast between 1st and 2nd period. Students - you may pick up a hot breakfast (tomorrow is chicken biscuit) and juice, or cold (cereal bar, fruit and juice). We also have extra fruit and milk if students want to pick it up. Menu is posted on the WCSD website and app. Rules: 1 - students who already received a school breakfast that day cannot pick up from Second Chance. 2 - Please scan your id, it is faster than typing in your number. 3 - no pushing, shoving, cutting in line. 4 - throw your trash in a trash can not on the floor/ground. 5 - move quickly to class so you are not tardy. If you have any questions, please let me know. Pbailey@wcmail.k12.ar.us

Do you know that Cafeteria menus are posted on the Watson Chapel Website and the Watson Chapel App? Last year we sent our surveys and are planning some changes based on your answers: Breakfasts will have a main item, but students can always select cereal or a cereal bar if they don't want the main item. We started making breakfast sandwiches last year and the students really enjoyed them. We will be sure that the first student in the door and the last student in the door both have the same options, so no one is left out from getting what they want. Second chance breakfast will start at the High School and Junior High on August 29th. This year we will have more variety on those menus. For lunches we are working on more fresh items. Last year we introduced our fresh pizza and the students loved it. We are also working to expand lunches at the primary schools so that students will be able to select from 2 main lunch items. We will post about those changes as they are ready to start. We hope to keep the High School Salad Bar open most days. In September we will try opening it for Junior High, but can only keep it open if students are responsible and clean up after themselves. If you would like to be on our Wellness Committee to review menus, or have any comments or suggestions on our menus, please contact Paula Bailey at 870-879-9432 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
