The Virgin Islands Department of Education, in partnership with the V.I. Department of Human Services, wants to ensure that all students who participate in the National School Lunch Program receive additional food assistance benefits through the new Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) program.

Public school parents and guardians are asked to confirm or update their primary mailing address during report card distribution at schools during the week of June 1-4. If mailing addresses are not updated, families risk not receiving the P-EBT card that will be issued via U.S. Postal Service.
