Attention 9th-11th grade students: Because our early dismissal from school prevented us from holding our officer selection as scheduled, we will be holding our Student Council officer election virtually this year. Please access the attached Google form using your school email address and cast your vote. An email with the same form will also be sent to your school email address in the event that you don't receive text message notifications. Please note that only one response per student in 9th-11th grade will be accepted. The voting window will close on Friday, May 29, at 5:00 p.m. We will hold Class Representative elections when we return to school in the fall. Thank you for your participation and Go Cats! https://forms.gle/sDsCFZdmn4Q8zDRj9

PANDEMIC-EBT AVAILABLE FOR STUDENTS RECEIVING FREE OR REDUCED-PRICE SCHOOL MEALS Amid the ongoing public health crisis, Louisiana has been approved for the new Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program. This program will provide extra help buying groceries for the families of the more than 600,000 children who normally receive free and reduced-price meals at school. Eligible families who complete an online application will be issued a P-EBT debit card by the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) to access benefits. The P-EBT card will function like a standard EBT card, and the same guidelines will apply. Families will receive $285 in total P-EBT benefits per child. Unused benefits will roll over month to month and must be used within 365 days. Use the following link to access the Information and Application: https://5il.co/g6mu

Bearcat Seniors, Today, May 4th, would have been your last “official” day as students at Ruston High School. Obviously, things didn’t turn out as planned. While so many things are out of our control, and with so many uncertainties during this time, I just wanted each of you to know that we are thinking about you and we miss you. We still look forward to the day we get to celebrate each of you. As soon as more information is available about graduation I will let you know immediately. Also, if your graduate supplies have not been delivered yet, I will let you know when we receive those. The Bearcat Family applauds you and your accomplishments. We are extremely proud of you! Go Bearcats! Dan Gressett
