Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) is a one-time food benefit for families who lost access to free or reduced-price meals due to school closures. Eligible P-EBT families will receive application instructions from schools in late May. The P-EBT application will open the first week of June.
P-EBT food benefits are for children who received SNAP food benefits for March 2020 and children who are certified for free or reduced-price school meals during the 2019-20 Texas school year. For more information, visit: hhs.texas.gov/PEBT

Mustang Merit Honorary Scholarship
Palo Pinto ISD is proud to offer a scholarship opportunity for current graduating seniors who plan to attend an institution of higher learning full-time or enlist full-time in the armed forces immediately following graduation (summer or fall semester). There are criteria to apply. Even in light of school closures due to COVID-19, applications are DUE no later than the 2nd Monday in April at 3:00pm. If mailing the completed application & required documents, it must be received in the district by the deadline. Late applications will not be considered. Though the plan is for scholarship recipients to be notified by the 2nd Friday in May, contingent upon funds and the submission of quality applications, due to recommendations of social isolation, the scholarship committee will be attempting to meet in order to fulfill that notification timeline. However, recipients may be notified after the 2nd Friday in May. To determine eligibility and to apply, click here. Good luck to all of our Mustang alumni applicants!

PPISD Will Remain Closed for the Remainder of the 2019-2020 School Year with Continued Remote Learning
As of April 17, 2020, Governor Abbott has issued an executive order closing schools for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. We will continue to provide in home learning support through the last day of school published on the 2019-2020 PPISD calendar. All services will continue as they have thus far.
In the near future, teachers will begin communicating with you about how we will close for summer. We are several weeks out and learning, as stated, will continue as we have been doing for now. We will create a plan and communicate that with the community/parents/students of how we will take care of the return of school materials (for example, library books), how students will retrieve any belongings that may have been left at school, etc. In the meantime, please support your student by retrieving assignments, tutoring as needed, helping to contact teachers for support, and turning in assignments.
Thank you for your understanding and flexibility. We know this has not been an easy process or wonderful experience for anyone. There is much uncertainly and stress surrounding our current state. We are doing the best we can as a public school district to meet state mandates and make it as manageable as possible. We hope there are some positive experiences transpiring even in the midst of this unfortunate circumstance. Please visit our COVID-19 corner on our website. Also, please continue to reach out to your child’s teacher with any support needed. They are on standby and ready to assist in any way they possibly can. We have the best staff and we truly have our students at the forefront of our minds and hearts! We absolutely cannot wait to see them again in our building. We will definitely miss our 6th graders next year who are moving on to secondary school, but hopefully we can plan something in the future when it is safe to do so to celebrate them and send them off with an appropriate farewell. I would encourage parents of 6th graders to be connecting with the secondary school of choice for 20-21 to stay up-to-date with any registration requirements, school visits/tours, class schedules, etc. In the meantime, stay safe, and again, thank you!
