COVID Infections by School District community

 

On Thursday of this week, in the governor's daily press conference, he and Education Secretary Key released a new data set from the Department of Health and ACHI that now track new COVID infections by school district community. 

Important note: This does NOT refer to the number of cases in the buildings among students and staff, but rather the number of cases throughout the community within our district's geographic boundaries.  

If you look on their graph (link below), it shows that our district’s community has one of the higher rates per capita (not raw numbers of people) of new infections within school district communities in the state at the moment.

While this definitely should be of concern to all of us work  work and live in this community, it is important to understand the formula they use to level the statistical playing field is factored on the number 10,000.  

They list our infection rate at 86, out of 10,000 community members.  The actual number of citizens in our school district is around 5,000. So the real number of individuals who are known to be newly positive is closer to 43.

Either way, the rate of new infections is one of the top in the state per capita right now in terms of school districts, and we are going to need to be extra diligent in considering this data as we prepared to bring students back on campus. Below is the link to the ACHI website where you may look at the data.

In the last few days I've had the opportunity to view and discuss the plans many of the other districts have in place at this point. 

I'm happy to share that our plan seems to be one of the more conservative, in terms of safety, that I have come across. In fact, many of the recommendations that the DESE gives districts that are entering the critical phase of positive cases are similar to what we already have in place just to start school. 

That does not mean we are going to let down our guard or fail to pay critical attention to what's going on around our community.  We will move quickly and decisively to keep our kids, staff, and community as safe as possible.

Pandemic EBT

In response to COVID-19 public health emergency, a benefit program called Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) has been developed for States to implement in assisting families that were receiving free or reduced lunches from their school.  The program was designed to help replace the cost of meals incurred by families as a result of the State eliminating public school gathering.

 

What is P-EBT?  

  • A program to provide nutrition benefits to families who have lost access to free or reduced-price school meals because schools were closed.
  • Eligible students and families will receive food benefits on a new or existing EBT card to help fill the school meals gap.
  • P-EBT is for eligible children in public and private schools.

 

How will P-EBT be paid? Amount to be paid?

  • This will be paid in a one-time payment and will be $319 per eligible child.
  • Benefits will be issued to a SNAP household on their existing EBT Card. 
  • If a household has had their SNAP case close in the last 6 months, benefits will be issued on that household’s existing EBT Card.
  • Non-SNAP households will receive an EBT Card(s) with their child’s name on it.  (See attached Buck Slip on instructions to activate the EBT card.)

 

When will P-EBT be issued?

  • Benefits should be issued by the end of June or early July.
  • Guidance will be forthcoming regarding the exact dates the benefits will be issued.
  • New P-EBT cards that are being issued will not be all mailed on the same day, but over a period of several days.

 

Addresses may not be up to date for students that will be receiving the P-EBT card due to schools closing in March.  Guidance below is for Parents to update their address if needed.

 

Non-SNAP Households:

  • Parents can call Client Assistance at 1-800-482-8988.
  • Parents can email their address change to pebt@dhs.arkansas.gov.
  • New address changes will be recorded up to June 15th, so that the information can be sent to the vendor for card issuance.

 

SNAP Households:

  • Parents will follow the same DCO business process that is in place by reporting their changes to Client Assistance or their local county office.

 

Note: Parents that do not receive SNAP and would like to verify if their address is correct should contact (call or email) their child’s school district to determine if the school has the current address.
