Pandemic-EBT Resources for Families

The Child Nutrition Outreach Program (CNOP) at Project Bread has created a webpage containing information and resources on school closure meals.  The webpage also includes information about Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT). The P-EBT resources were specifically created for schools and include an FAQ, P-EBT flyer for families, template emails to send to families, and promotional tools. You can view the resources here: https://meals4kids.org/COVID19

Families can qualify for P-EBT by completing the School Year 2019-2020 household school meal application. Even though school meals are currently free for all kids and teens through temporary USDA school closure waivers, a household school meal application approved right now does ensure the continuation of school meal benefits during the 30-day carryover period next school year. The approved school meal application also makes the household immediately eligible for P-EBT benefits. Therefore, DESE encourages school districts to approve School Year 2019-2020 household school meal applications received expeditiously and include those students in subsequent P-EBT student data submissions to DESE.

Dear Staff, students, parents, and Agawam Community,

We are excited to be releasing the Roberta G Doering Virtual Talent Show!  We have 26 acts that provide a snapshot of the talent here at Doering.  I promise that this show will NOT disappoint!

Specifically for the students we have a sprinkling of surprises in this show.  The virtual format has provided an opportunity to showcase some skills that would be difficult if not impossible to do on the stage.  I believe that this show is one of the blessings that has come out of a very difficult time for all.  A special thank you to Mr Rose, Mrs White, and Mrs Basile for helping me put this together!

Viewing directions are at the bottom of this message.  It is important to note that the show can only be viewed through an agawam email account.  Please grab some popcorn and a comfy seat and sit back and enjoy the show!

Sincerely,

Mrs Karen Cree

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Susan Federico, Principal - Roberta G. Doering School

The students at the Roberta G. Doering School have been extremely fortunate to have a kind, caring, dedicated Student Support Service Staff over the past several years.

The Student Support Service Staff have provided the backbone to a staff that has worked diligently to establish an outstanding school culture. Our motto of Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible has been embraced by students, staff, parents and administration.

Counselors have adopted the Massachusetts Model for School Counseling Programs which helps prepare students to work toward the goals of being college and career ready when they graduate from High School.

STUDENT DROP OFF AND PICK UP AT ROBERTA G DOERING SCHOOL

To ensure the safety of students, in conjunction with the police department, the town engineering department, school department and bus company, the Roberta G. Doering School has instituted a comprehensive student drop off and pick up plan.  Starting on the first day of school, all buses will access school grounds through the Town Hall parking lot and stage in the drive on the Town Hall side of the school in the morning and afternoon.  The front parking lot will be closed off to all traffic for morning drop off and afternoon pick up. Student drop off will take place by driving down the left hand side drive off Main Street, around the back of the school, then down the Town Hall side drive to the front door where students will exit cars and enter the building. There will be a brief wait on the rear parking lot at 8:19 when buses will enter the Town Hall side drive alongside the school, in 2 phases, to let students off.  After buses leave the grounds, student drop off will continue at the Town Hall side front door. Student pick up will occur in the rear of the building on the parking lot. Parents will be able to enter the left hand side drive beginning at 2:30 p.m. and stage in lines designated by cones on the rear paved lot.  After buses are loaded and leave the school grounds, students will exit the rear of the school on the Town Hall side when they will walk to cars for dismissal.  Walkers will also be dismissed after buses leave.  Please note that auto traffic should not enter or leave through Town Hall nor should they park at Towne Insurance Agency at the corner of Reed Street.  There will be ongoing bridge construction in this area beginning after the Big E.  Your cooperation in instituting this plan will be appreciated as we work to ensure the safety of students, staff and parents.
