Important SNAP (P-EBT) Information!!

Free breakfast and lunch to all children (ages 0-18)! Thanks to a grant from the USDA, Pea Ridge Schools will be providing free meals to all kids! The child does not need to be a Pea Ridge Student to receive the free meals. Free meal allocation does not apply to ala carte.  
Questions should be emailed to Julie Ferguson at jferguson@pearidgek12.com

*It is not necessary to complete a meal application for free and reduced priced meals as the United States Department of Agriculture has extended free meal benefits to all students at this time. Each student’s eligibility showing free, reduced, or paid last year will be rolled over to the 2021 – 2022 school year with the same eligibility. However, we do encourage families to fill out the application for change in eligibility or P-EBT purposes. School funding and services offered are directly tied to F & R numbers.  October 1 is the deadline for filling out applications.
