2020-2021 School Supply List

2020-21 School Year Informational Meeting

GHEC will be hosting an informational session about the 2020-21 school year on Wednesday, August 12th at 6:00 PM in the large gymnasium at the school in Granada. Information on the district’s plan for the safe return to school in the fall will be outlined at this meeting, and there will be time for questions to be addressed. Per executive order 20-81 masks will be required to be worn at this event. GHEC’s plans for safely returning to school will be distributed through email, and be available on the district website following this date as well. This event will be live-streamed on the district's Facebook page, and we will attempt to answer questions commented on the live video. If you have any questions in the meantime please don’t hesitate to contact the GHEC main office at (507) 447-2211.


Taking into account the summer schedules of all school staff, we are going to modify our meal delivery system during the month of July. 

Starting on Wednesday, July 1 meals will no longer be dropped off at homes but will be available to be picked up at the following locations (see below). On each Wednesday through the month of July five days worth of lunches and breakfasts will be available for pick up. If you have communicated with the school that you would like to receive meals during July your student’s meals will automatically be sent to the appropriate location below. Priority for receiving meals will be given to students who have communicated with the school that they would like to receive meals.  If you would like to receive meals please communicate with the GHEC main office at (507) 447-2211.

The Minnesota Department of Human Services is now offering additional funds for the families of children ages 5 to 18 who qualify for free and reduced-price meals. This new program, called Pandemic EBT (P-EBT), will provide $325 per child that families can use to purchase nutritious food for their household. Families with children who received free or reduced-price meals at school, and who were between the ages of 5 and 18 on September 1, 2019, may qualify. Benefits are available to two groups:  

  • Families receiving Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits on March 18, 2020. Benefits for these families were issued automatically and appeared on their EBT balance on May 30, 2020. These families do not need to take any further action.
  • Families receiving free or reduced-price school meals, but not SNAP or MFIP benefits. These families need to fill out a short application for a P-EBT card. Families can apply between June 8, 2020, and June 30, 2020. If approved, families will receive a P-EBT card in the mail, which will arrive with the funds preloaded.  

Families in need of assistance accessing or using their P-EBT benefits are urged to contact the P-EBT Hotline at 651-431-4050 or 800-657-3698. 

If your family or someone you know needs additional ongoing assistance accessing healthy foods, please contact your local tribal or county human services office, visit ApplyMN, or call the Minnesota Food HelpLine at 888-711-1151.
