Pandemic-EBT Benefits for Families Students who qualify for free or reduced-price meals may be eligible for Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) to purchase food for days they are not in the school building. To be considered, households must submit an application for free or reduced-price meals for the 2020-21 school year or be approved for Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. Families who received P-EBT benefits last summer are not automatically eligible; eligibility is based on the current school year. Benefits may be retroactive to September 2020, depending on when eligibility for free or reduced-price meals is determined. To ensure you qualify for the most benefits, please submit your application as soon as possible. We would also encourage you to update your email, address and phone number in the JMC parent portal to ensure that EBT benefit cards are mailed to the correct location. For more information, please contact Shauna Dalchow, 218-768-5123 or email@example.com.
On behalf of the students and staff of McGregor Schools, I'd like to thank Mille Lacs Energy Cooperative for their generous donation to our school this holiday season. This donation will be used for many things this year to enrich the educational experience of our kids. Thank You Brad Johnson Superintendent/Elementary Principal

While the high school halls remain empty a little while longer, the walls are filling up to give students a warm welcome when they return. Our school counselor and high school secretary personalized the bulletin board they are pictured in with every high school student’s name.
