The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) provides eligible households a discount of up to $30 per month off their internet bills (or up to $75 per month for households living on Tribal lands), as well as a one-time discount of up to $100 off an eligible connected device like a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet. In many cases, households can get high-speed internet without paying a dime by choosing a fully covered internet plan.

On August 8, 2022, the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) published an announcement to promote participation in the ACP. This letter serves as a reminder that a household is eligible to participate in the ACP if a child in the household receives free or reduced-price school meals. Therefore, under the ACP rules, every household with a child attending a school participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) of the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program is eligible for ACP benefits is eligible for ACP benefits.

Households can learn more and apply for the ACP at GetInternet.gov.

While this reminder is specific to schools that are participating in CEP, additional information about eligibility for CEP discount benefits can be found in the School Outreach Toolkit (available in English in PDF/Word and Spanish in PDF/Word) which provides information about other ways households can qualify for the ACP— including through an individual student’s participation in the National School Lunch Program or School Breakfast Program providing free or reduced price meals; through a household member’s participation in a wide range of other Federal assistance programs like Medicaid, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, and many others; or based on the household’s income (up to 200% of the Federal Poverty Level).

Dear Families,

At Nye County School District, we know the importance of school meals in fueling both healthy minds and bodies. Even though school meals may look a little different during School Year 2022-2023, please know that your school nutrition team is working hard to ensure students have safe, nutritious, and appealing meals. Today, I am writing to share how our district is working to overcome food supply and labor challenges related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) public health emergency so that students continue to receive school meals.

At times, our school district may not receive expected food orders due to labor shortages (such as delivery drivers) and limited product availability (for example, discontinued products or not enough of a specific type of product). As a result, your school may need to make last-minute changes to the menu or substitute a different brand of a food product. We know that students have favorite menu items and are working hard to provide them whenever possible. We are also thinking ahead to identify alternative food items that are nutritious and appealing for the students. 

If your student has food allergies or a special dietary need, be assured that meeting these needs and keeping your student safe remains a priority for us, and we will continue to provide meal modifications. If your student requires a meal modification or if you have questions or concerns about how your student’s food allergies or special dietary needs will be managed during these supply chain shortages, please get in touch with your child’s school nurse.

We appreciate your patience, flexibility, and understanding as we work to provide school meals in a challenging and changing environment. Please contact Kyera Glenn 775-727-7743 ext 357 or Joann Forney 775-727-7743 ext 353 with any questions, feedback, or suggestions.

Sincerely,

Nye County School District Food Service
