Everyone feels down sometimes. While feeling down is okay, it's important to acknowledge, and strive to improve it by speaking out about how you feel. Your input matters because you matter. We want to improve your experience at Jordan-Matthews and have it be the best it can be. By completing this survey you are not only helping yourself, you are helping others by giving us a broad view on what everyone would like to be acknowledged. PEPSC, the Peer Education Club of Siler City, encourages you to complete this survey, so we know how you are doing and we can stay connected.
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.

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. Our school system will remain in Plan C for the remainder of the first semester.
Please monitor your email, phones and our website for updates. Details about Plan C are on the coronavirus page of the district’s website. Look for the button at the top right that says Coronavirus Info.
Like many other schools in NC, JM has been designated as a Targeted Support & Improvement Additional Targeted Support (TSI-AT) school by the North Carolina State Board of Education. Under Federal law, North Carolina is now required to identify schools for targeted support and improvement. TSI-AT schools in North Carolina are those that have a subgroup that is under-performing.
Please read this letter for more information.
Through December 31, 2020, every child can receive meals at no cost. Families should continue to apply for free and reduced priced meal benefits and can continue to apply at any time during the school year.

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 email@example.com.
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.
