Greetings Eagle Academy,


Student personal belongings, spring pictures (with order/payment information), and identifiable contents from lost and found are being collected, sorted, and labeled for family pickup by our grade-level classroom and specials teachers.


Due to current health and safety concerns, we are following the Muni and ASD's COVID-19 protocols. It is suggested that individuals wear masks and use gloves when you are out and about not just for your personal protection but for the safety and health of others. Families will not be allowed to enter the building during personal item pick-up. We will be utilizing a non-person-to-person contact procedure to distribute student items to families, similar to a drive-through.


1) Using our normal "end of the day" "pick up" traffic flow, pull up to the curb as usual. Please have a sign with your family's last name and your student's first name(s) written in big bold lettering clearly visible to staff. Families should remain in their vehicles.


2) Staff will radio into the building and a staff member will retrieve your student's bagged items and wheel it out to the curb on a cart. Once staff members are a safe distance away, someone (preferably an adult) may exit your vehicle to retrieve the bag(s).


Please note that all items in classrooms that were not labeled or easily identifiable by your teacher or TA will remain in the classroom until the school is reopened.


Pickup will be according to the following schedule:


MONDAY, MAY 4


  • 9:00 am - 10:30 am - Students with Last Names A - G
  • 10:30 am - 12:00 pm - Students with Last Names H - Q

We are here to help

Eagle Academy is an amazing community professional educators, families, and friends who have come together to support one another. The COVID 19 pandemic has thrust us into new and unchartered territory. Many of us have had to learn to let go of what we thought life would be like, make adjustments, and have started re-envisioning a new life based on current realities.


Whether it is an unexpected loss of a job, unexpected medical bills, the stress of being cooped up at home for long periods of time, or the challenge of balancing teaching your students and working from home, many in our network are finding themselves in need of support or resources.


We are all in this together. EACS and the Anchorage School district are here to help. We know that children do their best work when they and their families have the resources they need to stay healthy and happy. Please don't hesitate to reach out to your teacher or Mrs. Carroll if there is anything we can do to help.

ASD Provides free meals to all students

The Anchorage School District continues to provide meals to ALL students, including EACS students, at designated sites and bus routes across the community. Each day our dedicated employees are excited to see so many kids coming to get a nutritious meal. We plan to continue this service to our ASD families, but we need your help. Whether picking up meals at our fixed sites or at one of our six bus routes, please be mindful of a couple of important safety measures.


  • Please maintain proper social distancing while at a pick-up site to help protect community members and ASD employees against the spread of COVID-19.
  • This includes not congregating in groups at any of the bus stops or rapidly approaching the buses as they stop.
  • School site pick-up will soon be outside of the school building. Tables and awnings will be set up outside to allow for quick, convenient pickup while helping to ensure everyone’s safety.

We want to continue to provide this valuable service, but we need everyone’s help to ensure it can be done safely for everyone involved.
