Here are some stats for the end of the 1st Semester:
Students with 6 or more absences = 192
Students with 10 or more absences = 73
Our school and district CCRPI score is affected by the number of student absences.
As of the 2015-2016 school year, the percent of students who have 6 or more absences is part of the formula that determines our CCRPI score.
Student attendance is just one way parents can help EPMS be successful! Attendance Matters!

#RESPECTEAST POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INCENTIVE PROGRAM
A new behavior incentive program will begin once students return to school on January 5th. Our #respecteast campaign will kick off as we begin to look for, acknowledge, and celebrate students who display positive, influential behaviors through a respect of self, others, and property!
Be sure you ask your students about it!
