U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will extend several flexibilities through as late as December 31, 2020. The flexibilities allow summer meal program operators to continue serving free meals to all children into the fall months. This unprecedented move will help ensure – no matter what the situation is on-the-ground – children have access to nutritious food as the country recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Letter From Superintendent
August 31, 2020 Dear Dothan City School Parents: With one week left before Dothan City Schools (DCS) begins, I wanted to reach out to you to provide information. Throughout the spring and the summer, I have given virtual updates that can be found on the Dothan City Schools’ Facebook page and website. In addition to my virtual updates, you will find all pertinent information related to COVID-19 as well as the District’s comprehensive ReOpening Plan.
The Alabama Department of Human Resources (DHR) announced it will issue Pandemic EBT benefits to eligible students in Alabama.
Pandemic EBT benefits will be provided to households that have children in grades K-12 who have temporarily lost access to free or reduced-price school meals due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These benefits are designed to cover meals missed since the onset of statewide school closures on March 18th through the end of the school year on May 29th.
The Pandemic EBT program includes current SNAP recipients, as well as any other children who are eligible for a free or reduced-price meal at school. Families interested in enrolling, would need to fill out Dothan City Schools Free & Reduced meal application and DCS Child Nutrition Program will process your application.
