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.

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
