2020-2021 Reopening Resources

August 6, 2020: We are collecting $10 gift cards for staff to offer thanks and appreciation for all the amazing hard work that has gone into making this complicated school year come together for the Ephesus community. If you are able, please purchase an electronic gift card from the business of your choice, and have it sent to president@ephesuspta.org Some staff favorites are Food Lion, Target, Walmart, Amazon, Chick Fil A, and Starbucks, but all are appreciated.

Here is the 2020-2021 Free and Reduced lunch application electronic form. Please fill it out to see if you qualify. If the state decides to provide more Pandemic food benefits a student having qualified for free or reduced lunch allows a family to receive those benefits. It's important to fill it out each year as the school receives funding for extra supports for students related to the applications. Please contact Marne Meredith at mmeredith@chccs.k12.nc.us or text/call 919-923-6788 if you need help completing the form.

If your family is in need of school supplies please let Ms. Marne Meredith, School Social Worker know at mmeredith@chccs.k12.nc.us or by texting or calling 919-923-6788 and be on the lookout for a family needs assessment she'll be sending soon.
