Maine's Department of Health and Human Services has received approval from Food and Nutrition Services to partner with the Maine Department of Education to provide a Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) benefit to school-aged children who normally receive free or reduced breakfast and lunch at Maine schools. This benefit will help to replace the value of school meals while students are learning remotely. Families currently receiving SNAP or TANF and have a child aged five through eighteen will receive a P-EBT benefit on their Pine Tree card in May. Families who are not receiving SNAP or TANF and have a child who is eligible for free or reduced school lunch can request the P-EBT benefit by calling 1-855-797-4357. Some household information will be requested by a phone agent who will then verify eligibility with the Maine Department of Education. Families who have not yet been found eligible for free or reduced lunch can apply through their local school district at the following link. www.myschoolapps.com Separate P-EBT cards will be issued for eligible families who do not already have a Pine Tree card. Please call our office if you cannot access the online application and we will mail you a paper copy. (207)247-3221 x2257

A message from our music teacher! I'm so excited to share another song with Alfred and Lyman elementary schoolers! This song is Count On Me by Bruno Mars. I chose this song because I think it really shows how special friendship is, and how important our friends are to us. I will be posting a new song every week on my channel, so be sure to check it out! I miss you all, and I can't wait until we're making music together again! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJNM3u15RLjwvkiL-gQRdbw?view_as=subscriber

Hello all, one of the most important things we can do for our children is read to them. Please see the attached video of Principal Pellerin reading "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie" by Laura Numeroff. https://youtu.be/AUpQY6z_lic I challenge our students to read their favorite book, record it, and share it with me!

In addition to the two open meal sites at Line Elementary and Massabesic Middle School, we will be implementing ​a ​free meal delivery​ service​ via specific bus routes​​ starting on Monday, March 23rd. These bus routes have been set up to bring food to the areas in our communities with the highest need. In order to keep the meals as safe as possible and to allow time for staff to safely prepare the meals, we will be doing two deliveries per day. One delivery in the morning for breakfast and one delivery in the afternoon for lunch. The bus routes will run Monday through Friday. Please visit the RSU 57 website or app to access the route map​ and approximate delivery times​. Students will have the option to receive breakfast and lunch each day and on Fridays they will receive two additional meals for the weekend. Our focus is to get meals closer to the students in our district that desperately need them. If your student is in need of meals and you cannot access the daily bus routes or the open meal sites please call 207-247-3221 x​2257 and we will do our very best to assist you. The meals available through our two meal sites as well as our specific area bus routes are available to all children 18 and under, free of charge. We want to be able to offer all children in our district the nutrition they need during this closure. In order to continue doing so, we do ask that only families that are in high need receive these meals. ​We will continue this service as long as our food supply and staffing needs can meet the demand.​​​

Lyman Elementary had 98% of our take home packets picked up today! Thank you parents for valuing education and helping us while we navigate this uncharted territory. I am so amazing and proud of our staff who gave up their practice online day to be at the school and help get the packets out to cars. I feel so fortunate to work in this community!
