AAPS Food Distribution and EBT Cards
The Ann Arbor Public Schools will distribute food Monday, March 1st and Thursday, March 4th at the regular locations and times. Food distribution will shift to one day a week on Wednesdays only starting March 10th. The Wednesday distributions will provide food for seven days: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Two new afternoon distribution locations will start at Carpenter and Scio Farms on March 10th. Full details on the food distribution program, including distribution times and locations, are available here.
Another round of EBT payments will be mailed home to eligible Free and Reduced Lunch families beginning the end of March from the State of Michigan. If your home address has changed recently, you must update it with your student’s school. For more information, including how to update your address, learn more here: EBT Card Information.
In-School Hybrid Option Approved
Wednesday, the Board of Education approved plans to offer an in-school hybrid option starting with Stage One on March 25th. The decision follows a new partnership with Michigan Medicine and IHA to provide vaccinations for K-12 staff in Washtenaw County as well as antigen testing for AAPS staff and students. Registrations are being shared today to families in Pre-K, elementary school and self-contained classrooms to be completed by March 8th. Please check your spam folder for the email from A2Schools@aaps.k12.mi.us if you have not seen the registration. A transportation survey will also be shared for eligible students. Registration for middle school and high school students will be available in the coming weeks.
