Summer EBT/ SUN Bucks Benefit

A new program called Summer EBT, or “SUN Bucks,” has been authorized by a bipartisan U.S. Congress to provide food dollars to low-income families with school-aged children over the summer months. The program is proven to reduce food insecurity and improve children's nutrition during summer break. Governor Shapiro’s administration announced that the Commonwealth would participate in this program beginning in the summer of 2024. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) oversees the program, and the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) coordinates the benefit issuance in Pennsylvania.

Avonworth School Calendar

At the January 16, 2024 school board meeting, the Avonworth Board of School Directors approved the 2024-2025 school calendar. Next school year’s calendar differs slightly from our typical school calendar due to the construction project on the secondary campus. The phases of construction scheduled for the summer of 2024 will require additional time than our usual summer break would accommodate.
