Pandemic EBT Benefits
DHS has begun distributing pebt benefits. Students who attended a CEP School; CPE, JES, PES, SVE, HMS, or Crater Renaissance Academy in SY 20/21 were automatically qualified. Students who were qualified for federal free/reduced meals also qualify for pebt benefits. DHS is using student data from fall 2020. We are awaiting instructions on how to update that data to include all students from SY 20/21.
DHS distributed thousands of cards to families who do not qualify for pebt benefits. If you received a card and it's empty and you know your student didn't attend a CEP school and DOES not qualify for federal free/reduced meals, this was sent by mistake.
If you receive snap benefits your pebt will be deposited in your account. If not you will receive a card in the mail. Look for a return address from South Dakota.
For all the details you can click here for the pebt website. Questions about your pebt status can be sent to [email protected], please include your student(s) name in the email.

School District 6 Meal Charging Policy
Our policy follows the regulations of Oregon House Bill 3454. All students who come to one of our serving stations or cafeteria for a meal are served a meal. Per HB 3454 we are not to discuss meal account balances or volunteer any information about your student(s) account with them when they are getting a meal. We will not remind them to bring lunch money while serving them their meal. For our complete policy please click the link below that fits the grade level your student(s) attends.
Our department takes pride in our meal quality. We have bakers working at Crater and Scenic to make all our dinner rolls and pan breads for Hanby and our Elementary Schools. Our bakers also make signature items for their schools. Many of our entree items are scratch made with local ingredients. We also make all of our salad dressings, sauces, and provide a wide variety of fresh vegetables and fruit options daily. Listed below are all of our Oregon business partners:
