Important School Meal Information for the 24-25 School Year

Dear Parent or Guardian:
We are pleased to inform you that The Graham School (TGS) will be implementing a new option available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for School Year 2024-2025.

What does this mean for you and your children attending the school(s) identified above?

Great news for you and your students! All enrolled students of TGS are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of the 2024-2025 school year. No further action is required of you. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit an application. We will be collecting Ohio Income Household forms in order for students to qualify for other programs. If we can be of any further assistance, please contact us at [email protected] or 614-262-1111. 

Sincerely,
Cathy Baney, Child Nutrition Director

What is Summer EBT or SUN Bucks?
The Summer Electronic Benefit Transfer Program for Children (Summer EBT or SUN Bucks) is new for summer 2024. Summer EBT/SUN Bucks provides grocery benefits to low-income families with school-aged children when school is closed for the summer. Summer EBT benefits will be loaded to a household’s Ohio Direction Card, or a benefit card will be sent in the mail to each eligible child.

Families can use the money to buy food during the summer at grocery stores, farmers markets and other authorized retailers. Families will receive a one-time benefit of $120 for each eligible child and participation will not affect children or families’ immigration status.

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY CHILD IS ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE SUMMER EBT/SUN BUCKS AND HOW DO I APPLY?
  • For ALL Schools - If your household already participates in SNAP, OWF or if income eligible and receiving Medicaid benefits, your child will automatically be enrolled to receive summer benefits with no further action.
  • If you completed a meal eligibility application for 2023-24 school year and were approved for free/reduced meal benefits, your child will be automatically enrolled to receive the summer benefit with no further action.
  • If you did not complete a meal eligibility application, but you believe that your child might be eligible, you can complete a meal eligibility application as soon as possible at https://sebt.ohio.gov/
    • When applying, you will be asked to provide your child’s name, school, date of birth, address and some additional details. You will also be asked to report your household’s income. You will not need to provide any other documents or information including social security number, proof of citizenship, or pay stubs to apply.

TGS Student Expectations for Success

Summary
  • Success for students requires them uphold our expectations for phones, classroom behavior and timely and continuous presence in class. 
  • Students need to bring computers to school charged daily
  • Covid guidance at TGS reflects CDC and ODH guidance; appropriate mask wearing and vaccination are our strongest defenses against Covid-19.
  • Please be prepared should we need to move temporarily to online learning.

Dear TGS Students and Families,
Welcome back! We hope that you had a restful and restoring winter break. At Graham we strive to grow strong relationships in our school community. We know that a supportive educational environment provides our students with greater academic success, undermines inequities, strengthens insulating factors against anxiety and depression and empowers our students to shape the futures they desire. For learning spaces to be successful, students need to be in them. For students to master content, they need to engage in the work. For students and staff to support each other and to strengthen classroom cultures, everyone must bring respect and empathy to TGS on a daily basis.

To this end we would like to reiterate expectations that we lifted up to you in December. Click MORE+.
