**Meal distribution has now transitioned to one day a week only. You will be able to pick up 10 meals per child every THURSDAY.**
The federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020 provides benefits, referred to as Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT), to families of school-aged children who would have otherwise received free or reduced-priced meals if it were not for school closures.
Families of school-aged children (K-12) in School District of Philadelphia public schools will receive the approximate food benefit amount of $365.00 for each school-aged child in their family. This benefit will be issued in the form of a P-EBT card by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS).
If you already have an active EBT card, the P-EBT funds will be automatically added to your card. You do not need to do anything for this to occur.
If you do not have an active EBT card and your mailing address is correct with the School District you also do not need to do anything to receive your P-EBT card.
If your mailing address with the school District is NOT correct, please provide your current mailing address to ensure proper delivery of your P-EBT card.
You can update your current address by clicking HERE and updating it with the Andrew Hamilton School OR by contacting our school secretary, Mrs. Davis, at 215.690.1397.
You may also click HERE for more information. We are here to assist you in updating your address to ensure that you all receive this resource.
Virtual Live Classes via Google Meet
Educators will continue to provide instruction through live virtual classes, sharing instructional videos, providing work through Google Classroom, iReady, and etc. We ask that you ensure your child logs into their Google Classroom EVERYDAY to make sure that they are completing their assignments and to make sure that they are logging into their virtual classes that are taught by their educators.

If you need any assistance, please contact your child’s educator, contact an administrator (Principal Butler- email@example.com; AP Uthman-Olukokun firstname.lastname@example.org), or text (484) 540-5153 for assistance.
