Dear Staff, Parents and Guardians,
Peace be with each of you.
We did it. We made it to the last day still strong! Thanks be to God!
Just a reminder:
Parents of online students should have heard from in-person teachers regarding testing this week for the online students. Online students should return the Chromebooks when they come for testing or to pick up meals or other items. Chromebooks will be cleaned and restored at the building for next year.

See the attached flyer for details.

Important information for parents or guardians of student’s eligible for Free and Reduced Lunch at St. John Vianney School.
What is the Pandemic-EBT Program?
The Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) Program gives food benefits to families with children who were not able to get free or reduced-price school meals due to COVID. You may hear about this benefit from other schools or in the media.
Who is eligible?
Being eligible for this program will depend on what school your student attends. Eligibility for the Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) Program can be different between schools within the same district.
What makes a school eligible for P-EBT?
A school building is eligible only if the building has had 5 school days in a row of reduced in-person hours due to COVID.
What could make my student eligible for P-EBT?
1) If the school they attend is eligible for P-EBT and
2) If your student normally gets free and reduced meals at school and
3) If your student is not getting instruction in-person for some or all the month.
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) issues P-EBT benefits based on:
•How each school building reports their eligibility
•How most of the students attend school during the month
There may be months when your student’s attendance was different from what the school reported. In that case, you may be able to have your student’s benefit level reconsidered. Your request to be reconsidered must be submitted by June 30, 2021. In the month(s) below your school reported primarily in-person. Your student(s) may be P-EBT eligible if they attended class on-line, for some time or all the time in the following month(s):
