Road Closure - effect on Bus Stops for Hi...
Due to the partial closure of McCoy Road effective 7/20/20 through 12/2020, the district will eliminate the school bus stops for Jr/Sr High school students at McCoy Rd & Dunn St, and at Norwood Park for the 2020-2021 school year.  High School students who previously used these stops will be required to walk to school.  All other district students, charter students and parochial students may have their stops moved because of this closure. The adjustments to stops and routes will be in effect for the entire year, regardless of the road reopening. All routes will be reevaluated to account for detours and for the most efficient plan possible.

The federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020 provides temporary benefits, referred to as Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT), to families of school-aged children who would receive free or reduced-priced meals if school was in session.  
 
For each day school is closed, families of school-aged children certified as free or reduced eligible will receive the equivalent of the free high rate for lunch and the severe need rate for breakfast. Specifically, a family will receive $5.70 for each eligible school-aged child in their family for each day school has been closed since March 16, 2020.

UPDATED on July 1, 2020:  Families that receive SNAP or TANF should have already had their benefits issued to their EBT card. If not, you may direct families to submit an inquiry at https://www.emergencymealsurvey.com/PA. All others, cards are in the process of being issued and mailed, but due to the very large volume, the timeline is slightly delayed.  Households should receive their cards by the end of July.
