We understand that a letter from the Department of Social Services regarding the Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) cards was mailed out today and potentially contained incorrect guardian and/or address information. Since this information was collected at the state level, NCDPI and DSS have been made aware of the issues and are working together to correct errors in the data prior to issuing the cards later this month. At this time, there is no need to contact your school since this issue is being addressed at the state level.
