Hybrid Learning Launch!
We are very excited to share that all of our campuses have moved into full hybrid learning as of this month! We have made this decision with great care and will continue to monitor health metrics closely to ensure that in-person learning remains safe for students and staff. If you are interested in participating in hybrid learning, please reach out to your school leaders.

Reminder: P-EBT Benefits Available
We want Roxbury Prep families to know that the P-EBT benefit has been extended for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year. All students who attend Roxbury Prep are eligible to receive Pandemic-EBT funding to support families while their students are attending remote learning. You do not need to apply to receive this benefit. The balance will automatically be applied to your existing EBT card or an EBT card will be sent directly to you. Families should expect to receive the next set of funds sometime in late January. If you have questions about the P-EBT program or did not receive your funds, please review this website or reach out to Project Bread at (800) 645-8333 with questions.
