Because of special COVID-19 rules that made Pamlico County schools meals free for all during the past two years, many High School families have not completed a free and reduced-price (FRP) school meals application recently. Please make sure you turn in your FRP application by August 31, 2022, this will not only have you ready for school meals in the fall but will also make sure you’re eligible for Summer P-EBT benefits!
