The Canaseraga Central School District has been notified that P-EBT has been extended for our students during the 2020-21 school year. P-EBT provides benefits to help families buy food during the COVID pandemic. It is our understanding that our students will qualify based upon our school district’s status as a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school district. Some of the literature talks about funding for remote learning students. We have been told our students will qualify based upon being a CEP school, even though we are doing 100% in-person instruction.
We are waiting for additional information, including details about which students will be eligible, and how and when families will receive benefits. There are two things you can do while awaiting further details to avoid an unnecessary delays:
On Thursday, November 5, the school district learned that a member of the Canaseraga community tested positive for COVID-19. This is not a person directly affiliated with the school district on a daily basis. However, this has led to a number of individuals in the school building being notified, by the Allegany County Department of Health, that they are direct contacts and must quarantine. It is our understanding the scope of contacts is small.
Thank you to everyone in our school community for ontinuing to be diligent in monitoring your health and the health of our students on a daily basis. Just a reminder that if you or your children have symptoms, please do not come to school and notify the school nurse.
