P-EBT CARDS BEING ISSUED BY THE DHHS - ALB STUDENTS NEED TO APPLY
The Dept of Health and Human Services will be issuing Pandemic EBT cards to KCS students. As in the past, the addresses used to mail the cards will be pulled from Powerschool. If you need to update your information please contact your child’s school.
PARENTS FOR ALB STUDENTS ONLY: If your student is not already receiving SNAP benefits and you would like to see if you qualify for the P-EBT benefit card based on your income, you will need to fill out a free and reduced lunch application online by going to the KCS website and clicking on the green icon that says, “Apply Online for Free and Reduced Meal Benefits.”
If you wish to receive a paper application, paper applications will be available at the KCS central office. Your student will still receive free meals at school and during curbside service. This is only if you wish to qualify for the P-EBT card. If you are already receiving SNAP benefits, you do not need to apply. SNAP recipients automatically qualify for the P-EBT card. This is only if you are not receiving SNAP benefits and wish to determine your eligibility for the new P-EBT benefit card.
