P-EBT BENEFITS

A message was recently sent to parents in reference to Pandemic-EBT benefits. It is important that we have accurate addresses in PowerSchool for all enrolled students, so you can receive this benefit in the mail. P-EBT is a federal program. The Department of Social Services (DSS), in collaboration with the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE), received approval to operate this program in response to the COVID-19. P-EBT provides food supports to help families with children who were receiving free and reduced-price school meals pay for food. The planned one-time additional benefit is $375 per child enrolled in the free and reduced-price meals program. To receive this benefit, make sure your address is up to date as soon as possible, as the cards will go out by November 15, 2021.
 

Parents are encouraged to change their address with their child’s school via the school’s Administrative Assistant OR can NOW do so via their PowerSchool account (preferred). In each instance they must provide proof of residency when providing a new address.

 

Updating your address via PowerSchool Parent Portal

  1. Log into www.powerschools.nhboe.net

  2. Sign in using the secure login information.

  3. Select forms on the left hand menu options.

  4. Select the Change of Address form.

 

What documents are needed to update an address in PowerSchool? The following documents are acceptable:

  • A copy of the current mortgage statement or original lease agreement for your residence. OR

  • One current utility bill (within the last 30-60 days) for your residence (UI, gas, cable, water)

If a parent is not able to provide proof of residency (e.g. they are not listed on a lease and have not utilities in their name) they must now complete a NHPS Residency Affidavit. This document must be notarized and submitted to the Office Of School Choice & Enrollment. All documents can be easily accessed on the district website or by clicking the links below.
