The Chickasaw Nation is implementing a program titled “Summer EBT for Children.”  This program uses household income to determine your eligibility.  This program is for students who would qualify for free or reduced lunches at school using federal guidelines, and this program provides qualifying parents a debit card which can be used for food during the summer months.  Even though all children receive free lunches at Bennington Public School, this is a separate summer program which requires parents to complete the “Summer EBT for Children” form which contains income and other information required for eligibility.  Your income that you list on the application will be used to determine eligibility.  This is an amazing program and will help many families in our area with food for the summer! 


EBT for Children

Families with Children Receiving Free and Reduced School Meals

Will Receive Free Food this Summer!

Dear Parent or Guardian:

The Chickasaw Nation Nutrition Services is excited to bring you the Summer EBT for Children program! This federally funded program is available to all races; you do not have to be Native American to qualify. Qualifying families will receive benefits on an EBT card (that works like a debit card) to purchase healthy food for the summer.

Families with school-age children (Pre-K through 12th Grade) qualifying for free or reduced school meals will receive approximately $30 of free food per child per month for the three summer months. For example, a family with three school-age children would receive an EBT card providing approximately $90 in free food per month for each of the three months that school is out (approximately $270 for the summer).

If your child qualifies for free and reduced meals at school, complete the form on the back of this page and return it to your school by May 1, 2016. Please complete one form listing all school-age children in your family clearly and completely.

Summer EBT for Children Facts:

  • Participation in this program will have absolutely no impact on any government  assistance that you and your child may currently receive.
  • This program will be provided through a joint effort of the Chickasaw Nation Nutrition Services and your local school district.
  • Information provided by you on the consent form or any records obtained for this program will be kept confidential as allowed by law and will be used only for this project. Your participation in the project and agreement to release your child's records is voluntary.
  • Summer EBT cards will be sent to the address you put on the form along with a list of participating stores and a food card (shopping list) that will help you identify assigned food items.

Bennington Public School has extra snow days built in to our current calendar that we have not used this year.  As a cost saving measure, we will be using our unused snow days Monday, March 28th and Thursday, May 12th.  This means NO school on Monday, March 28th, which will allow for a longer Easter break, and students will also be released for summer break one day earlier than the original calendar reflected.  The Elementary Awards Assembly will be Wednesday, May 11th at 9:00, and the High School Awards Assembly will be Wednesday, May 11th at 10:00 (or directly following the elementary assembly).  Students’ last day of school this year will be Wednesday, May 11th.  8th Grade Graduation will be Thursday, May 5th at 6:30 in the Chitwood Center.  Kindergarten Graduation will be Monday, May 9th at 6:30 in the Chitwood Center.  High School Graduation will be Thursday, May 12 at 7:00 in the gymnasium.

Thank you,

Pamela Reynolds, Superintendent
