With schools closed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, students still need to be able to access healthy meals. To help with this, families with a child or children who usually get free or reduced price meals through the National School Lunch Program can get temporary food benefits. These benefits are called Pandemic EBT or P-EBT.
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is automatically providing these benefits to most children who usually get free or reduced price school meals based on information they have on file. If the Wisconsin Department of Health Services doesn’t have enough information about you, you’ll be able to apply for the benefits.
You may also contact Mrs. Pollock(SSW), at her Google voice number, 262-528-3714 with questions.
Please call 414-810-1545 for more information.

Thank a teacher during Teacher Appreciation Week
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week! As we navigate school closures during the coronavirus pandemic, please share your thanks and support of all teachers who educate and care for our children. Our students’ futures depend on the work of teachers and school staff.
Help us celebrate teachers! Send us a creative photo, message of thanks, or short video honoring a favorite teacher or your school. Post on social media and tag with #TAW2020, #MPSProud, or #MPSTeacher, or send your messages to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Teaching is a balancing act of academics, safety, behavior, and student needs, now with added layers of complexity during the Safer at Home order. MPS teachers are finding new ways to engage with their students through social media, Google Classroom, online learning, and more. Browse MPS social media posts on Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, and Instagram to see the many ways that teachers are staying connected and supporting students.
Nationwide, teachers are in demand. A national shortage of teachers means that schools will be searching to fill teaching positions at least through the next five to ten years. Consider becoming a teacher to impact the next generation!
Thank you to every one of the more than 5,000 teachers who work for MPS! Our students, families, and the community appreciate the dedication and hard work that teachers put in every day. We encourage the entire Milwaukee community to thank our teachers!
Help your child keep learning! With schools closed due to coronavirus, it’s important for students to learn while at home. MPS will be closed for at least three weeks of regular class time.
MPS is currently offering instructional learning materials at all 20 “Stop, Grab, and Go” locations along with packaged meals for students. Learn more about this program on the MPS COVID-19 Update page. These instructional materials are filled with activities to support and enrich learning during the extended closure.
Students and families can also access a number of online resources selected by the MPS Office of Academics. Online access to websites for enrichment in reading, writing, math, science, and more for all grade levels are provided below.
