P-EBT MONEY

FACTS Families:

IMPORTANT – P-EBT money is being sent to every FACTS family! If you do not currently receive EBT benefits it will come in a plain white envelope from the state. It will not say FACTS. Do not throw it away!

Pennsylvania was approved to issue Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) benefits to families of school-age children who have not had access to free or reduced-price school meals due to school closures.

  • All FACTS students are eligible to receive the P-EBT benefit.
  • For families who currently receive EBT benefits, they will begin noticing the additional funds, for each of their District students, added to their existing EBT card beginning in early May.
  • For those who do not currently receive EBT benefits, the state will mail a P-EBT card to the household address on file in the District’s student information system (SIS).

TECH DEVICES

FACTS will be issuing each student a Chromebook this year. Grades 5-8 will use their Chromebook regularly in class and will be responsible for transporting it safely to and from home and school daily. Grades K-4 will use Chromebooks within the class. All students will be trained and educated on Google Classroom and internet safety and responsibility. We expect parents to be involved in ensuring that your child properly cares for this school device when at home.

G SUITE, GOOGLE CLASSROOM, & PLUS PORTALS

FACTS will continue to use G Suite products this year. Students will be using Google Classroom for student assignments. Plus Portals will continue to be used as a place to check grades, report cards, IEPs, and attendance.

FREE BREAKFAST & LUNCH

All FACTS students can receive free breakfast and free lunch from FACTS. We encourage you to participate!

STUDENT SCHEDULE

Student school hours are:  7:30am – 2:30pm

These hours include breakfast/Morning Meeting (7:30-8:10am), What I Need (WIN),  outdoor/recess time, content courses, specials, and breaks.

 

WIN (WHAT I NEED)

FACTS will have a scheduled block of time for students to receive additional academic support from teachers.

ASYNCH LEARNING

Students will be learning from home once every month. Students in grades 5-8 will be taking home their assigned Chromebook and using Google Classroom, while students in grades K-4 will be using hard copy packets.

 

AT-HOME LEARNING RECOMMENDATIONS

We strongly recommend families set up an undisturbed space in the home for their child to fully engage on asynch days or any unexpected virtual learning days. The following are some tips to set your child up for virtual success:

  • Keep the laptop on a desk or table
  • Have the camera facing a wall (instead of full view of room)
  • Have your child wear school appropriate clothing (ie – Dress Down Day guidelines)
  • Keep the video on as much as possible
  • Have all learning materials close by
  • Decorate the space to inspire learning
  • Post learning goals
  • Headsets help to drown out background noise (optional)
