Possible Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) Summer Benefits Card Delay: A delay has occurred in mailing the new summer P-EBT cards.

Possible Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) Summer Benefits Card Delay: A delay has occurred in mailing the new summer P-EBT cards. For summer P-EBT, a child will receive a new P-EBT card if the child did not receive the school year 2020-2021 card after February of 2021. Please be aware some households may have received a letter indicating that the new summer P-EBT card was already received. However, new cards are not likely to arrive before the last week of July.

Please note that P-EBT cards for the school year 2020-2021 received after February of 2021 should have the first $190 allocation of summer P-EBT already posted to the previously issued P-EBT card or the household SNAP card. The second allocation of $185 will occur on newly-mailed cards and existing P-EBT/SNAP cards in July. Schools are encouraged to communicate this information to households as soon as possible.

Statement Recognizing Juneteenth Federal Holiday

The Graham Family of Schools (The Graham School, The Charles School, and Graham Elementary and Middle School) joins in solidarity in recognizing the long overdue new federal holiday of Juneteenth!  This is an important new holiday recognizing the day that the last slaves were freed in the U.S.  Since this was newly minted into law within the past 24 hours, we are trying to do our best to recognize the holiday while upholding our obligation to you and your student to continue to educate them in summer school and host normal school activities.  This year we plan to maintain our open status and will not change the school day for Friday, June 18, 2021 (when many federal and state agencies are celebrating).  We plan to integrate Juneteenth into our future academic calendars and celebrations.  At this time, if you and your student wish to observe this holiday, this will not count against them for attendance for June 18, 2021.  If you have questions, please direct them to the office at the respective school.
