Canyon Crest Elementary School

Utah households will need to apply for free/reduced meal benefits with their local school no later than May 6 to be potentially eligible for pandemic EBT (P-EBT). P-EBT benefits are different from free/reduced meal benefits but parents are required to complete the same free/reduced meal application in order to receive benefits for either of the programs.

P-EBT can help individuals purchase food if their children have temporarily lost access to free or reduced-price meals due to school closures from COVID-related emergencies, or other COVID-related school absences during the 2021-2022 school year. To qualify for P-EBT, individuals must be signed up for free or reduced-price school meals.

During the 2021-22 school year, all students, regardless of income status, were able to receive one free breakfast and one free lunch each day they attend school. However, this does not qualify students for P-EBT going forward, nor does it automatically give students free-reduced status. To determine the free-reduced status of a student, individuals must apply through their school.

Apply for free or reduced-price meals before May 6, 2022, to be eligible for P-EBT benefits for this school year. Apply online at: www.myschoolapps.com

Los hogares de Utah deberán solicitar beneficios de comidas gratuitas o reducidas con su escuela local a más tardar el 6 de mayo para ser potencialmente elegibles para el programa EBT pandémica (P-EBT). Los beneficios de P-EBT son diferentes de los beneficios de comidas gratuitas o reducidas, pero los padres deben completar la misma solicitud para recibir los beneficios de estos programas. Más información sobre los próximos plazos para los beneficios de comidas gratuitas/reducidas del próximo año aquí.

P-EBT puede ayudar a las personas a comprar alimentos si sus hijos han perdido temporalmente el acceso a comidas gratuitas o a precio reducido debido al cierre de escuelas por emergencias relacionadas con COVID u otras ausencias escolares relacionadas con COVID durante el año escolar 2021-2022. Para calificar para P-EBT, las personas deben inscribirse para recibir comidas escolares gratuitas o a precio reducido.

Durante el año escolar 2021-22, todos los estudiantes, independientemente de su estado de ingresos, pudieron recibir un desayuno y un almuerzo gratis cada día que asisten a la escuela. Sin embargo, esto no califica a los estudiantes para P-EBT en el futuro, ni les da automáticamente a los estudiantes comidas gratis o reducidas. Para determinar el estado de comidas gratis o reducidas, las personas deben presentar una solicitud a través de su escuela.

Solicite comidas gratuitas o a precio reducido antes del 6 de mayo de 2022 para ser elegible para los beneficios de P-EBT para este año escolar. La solicitud esta en línea en: www.myschoolapps.com Ver el recurso de Utah para pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer

In our library specialty, we are celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month by reading books by Spanish-speaking authors. The kids have loved it!...

Our 6th graders in Señora George's classes did a fun Hydro Dipping Experiment this year. They integrated art into their science lesson about matter, temperature, and density. Wow! That looks so...
