  • JM On the Road Hotspot Bus Rolls Out Nov 16!

    We are excited to announce that next week will be our first tour of "JM On The Road." This will be a new service that we will be offering for students as long as we remain on Plan C. We have two hotspot buses that will be going out and parking on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday at various locations for students to access. As long as students are within 120 feet of the bus, they can connect to the provided wifi. We are hoping to use this as a mobile tutoring service for students. 

     
    The Gold Hot Spot Bus will run from 11:00-2:00 on Monday and Thursday and make stops at Bray Park (11:15), Boling Park (12:00), and back at JM (1:00). The Blue Hot Spot Bus will run on Tuesday and Thursday from 11:00-2:00 and make stops at Fellowship Baptist Church (11:15), Rocky River Baptist Church (12:00), First Baptist Chruch on MLK Blvd (1:00 on Tuesday), and back at JM (1:00 on Thursday). Here is the schedule for the stops.

    During its September 23 meeting, the Chatham County Board of Education voted for our schools to continue operating under the statewide option known as Plan C, which means all instruction occurs through remote learning.

  • Food Assistance for Chatham Families

    COVID-19 has kept some Chatham County residents from securing food. They may benefit from the newly created Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) Program.

    The program provides benefits on an Electronic Benefit Transfer card, or EBT card. The benefits are for children who would receive free or reduced-priced meals, so it is very important to make sure the address on file for students is correct. The data manager at the appropriate school for students should be contacted to make updates to addresses, or call 919-542-6400 to make updates.

    No application process is necessary to receive P-EBT benefits. The card will function like a standard EBT card, and the same guidelines will apply. 

    Those already receiving Food and Nutrition Services benefits will receive an additional benefit on their existing EBT card in the next few weeks. Those eligible for P-EBT benefits who are not already enrolled in Food and Nutrition Services benefits will receive a new EBT card in the next few weeks. Before that card arrives, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services will mail a letter explaining how to activate the card and how to use it. 

    The Chatham County Department of Social Services will receive questions about this program by phone at 919-542-2759 or through email at askdss@chathamnc.org.

    Those using P-EBT benefits are encouraged to also take advantage of meal distribution at designated public schools and community locations. The meals are free for anybody 18 years old and younger. Find local meal sites by texting FOODNC to 877-877. Spanish speakers may text COMIDA to 877-877.
