P-EBT Information

Through P-EBT (Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer) eligible school children receive temporary emergency nutrition benefits loaded EBT cards that are used to purchase food. The state of Louisiana will determine eligibility and send the cards out to families directly. Families do not apply for the card. The state will use information from the school system to determine eligibilty. PLEASE: Do not call the school as we do not determine eligibilty. 

What you can do to help: Please make sure that your address is current in the system as this is where the state will send the P-EBT card. If you have moved and need to update your address, please email your new information to sarah.blair@jpschools.org by May 19, 2021. You can confrim the address the system has through the Student Progress Center.

For more information, please consult the Louisiana Department of Children & Family Services' website.
