Hundreds of friends, family and community members were on hand to cheer the seniors and their many accomplishments.

NYS 2024 Summer Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) Funds

The USDA and New York state provide families with an extra food benefit for the summer months, when some children do not have access to school meals. The benefit is $120 per child, per month.

This year, the Summer Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) program will work a little differently.

While Fort Plain CSD is a CEP district, meaning all students eat at school for free, this does not automatically qualify all of our students for EBT benefits. Only students from households with qualifying incomes are eligible.

Many children are automatically eligible for Summer EBT. These include:

  • Families that have received SNAP or Medicaid benefits during the 2023-2024 school year, your children are already eligible. You do not need to take any action—your benefits will be automatically sent, beginning in July.
  • Families that qualified for “free or reduced” status during this school year, for example those who applied for reasons of AP fees or driver’s education class.  Students in these families have already been reported by the district and will also automatically receive their benefits. Families cannot apply for this “free or reduced” status with the district now—the deadline for that has passed.

If your family does not receive SNAP or Medicaid, but you believe your household income falls below the threshold, you can apply for the Summer EBT benefits. Only one application per household is required.

To apply, visit: otda.ny.gov/programs/summer-ebt/

Applicants will need:

  • children’s names
  • dates of birth
  • address
  • phone & email address

Applicants also need a NY.GOV ID, used for electronically signing documents online. Those who do not have a NY.GOV ID may apply for one at: my.ny.gov/Login\4/login.xhtml (click on “create an account.”) This step should be completed before beginning the EBT application.

Applicants will be notified by email when their application is received. They will then be notified in late August or early September about whether the application has been approved.

More Details

Summer EBT benefits will no longer be put onto SNAP cards. For those who received Pandemic EBT funds last year, the Summer EBT benefits will be deposited onto that same P-EBT card. A new Summer EBT card will be sent to those who did not receive benefits last year, but qualify for them this year.

All families who automatically qualify for EBT this year will be notified by letter. The letter will tell these families when and how to expect their benefits.

Please make sure that the address on file with your county SNAP department or with the state EBT office is up to date. To request an address change, call 1-833-452-0096 or visit otda.ny.gov/programs/summer-ebt/#overview

If you cannot find your old P-EBT card, but you still remember your four digit PIN, you can request a new card by calling 1-888-328-6399. If you cannot find your old P-EBT card and you don’t know what the four
digit PIN associated with the old card is, then request a new card by calling 1-833-452-0096.

Class of 2024 Senior Parade, Friday, June 21

Don’t miss our Fort Plain Class of 2024 Senior Parade this Friday, June 21.

The parade will kick off at the Save-A-Lot parking lot in downtown Fort Plain at 5:30 p.m. and wind it’s way through the village, ending at the Jr./Sr. High School.

Weather-related schedule/event changes – Week of June 17-21

Greetings Fort Plain CSD families,

I trust this letter finds everyone well and eagerly anticipating the fun that summer vacation can bring.

New York State has issued a heat advisory as temperatures may exceed 90 degrees in the coming days. Due to this, we are making several adjustments to ensure students remain safe and comfortable.

Harry Hoag Elementary School Updates

Unfortunately, we have canceled two elementary field trips that were scheduled for this week due to the extreme heat advisory. We were unable to ensure that adequate amounts of water and shade would be available at the off-site locations.

In addition, on Tuesday, June 18, and Thursday, June 20, we will serve student lunches earlier. This will allow us to have the air conditioned cafeteria accessible to all grade levels. We are making plans to show a movie and offer quiet activities such as computer-based games, board games and art projects in the cafeteria during the afternoon hours on both days. Teachers and students will also have access to the air conditioned computer lab and Library Media Center on those days.

Jr./Sr. High School Updates

For the remainder of this week, any local final exams that were scheduled to be given in the afternoon will be canceled and rescheduled. We have made arrangements for any scheduled Regents exams to be administered in the afternoon in Room 112, the library or the auditorium, as each space has air conditioning. Students and their families will receive a revised schedule for testing.

Other Reminders

Wednesday, June 19/Juneteenth—No school.

Friday, June 21—Early dismissal at 11:30 a.m. for Harry Hoag Elementary School students.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Crisman
